2.5" Front mini add a leafs-ANY GOOD?

Looking to get the front of my early 99 up a little hoping to fit some 35's under it comfortably. Anyone use these? Are they ok to do?

You need a 4" lift to run those 35's. I have X-codes and a BDS 2.5" shackle kit and have cut the driver side wheel well a bit and it still rubs on a hard left.

We stuck 35's under a stock superduty and there was some rubbage but not too bad. I would think 2" would probably be enough...

It is all in the offset of the wheels...

I have a 01 with a add a leaf. I have a 20x9 wheels with a 0 offset with a 35x13.50x20 pro comp. They rub on the leaf spring because I really need a -12 offset wheel. But 35's will clear on a leveled superduty.

4.5" BS is what should be used.
