no, not really. when i lifted my 03, i got 1 1/2" lift shackles. i wasnt as happy as i would have liked to be. there was still more rake than i wanted. now i see there are 1 1/2, 2, and 2 1/2" ones out there. i have 2" shackles coming. i just see too many trucks with 2 1/2' level kits that the rear of the truck sits lower than the front..... so hopefully 2" will e perfect for me, i like a little rake. i got my 2" from topguncustomz, they are also on ebay.

EDIT: i see that you have a f250, mine is and was a f350. they have taller lift blocks in the back. so i am not sure how much lift you need in the front. you could also but in f350 blocks to get a small lift. the f350 block is 3 5/8" tall.
