I'm not sure about dropping the rear, but Sky Manufacturing makes a bracket kit to raise the front to level the truck.

DJM suspension carries what you are looking for but I am not sure how far you can go without removing the overloads, reducing your capacity and adding the need for bags in the rear.

but why lift the front of a 2wd truck unless you want to make it a pre-runner, which a diesel dually would never be because it is huge and heay defeating the point of a pre runner truck, but i guess if that is your thing more power to you
