Made her sit nice and level!

Got around to leveling the front end last night, raised about 2.5 inches total. First step of many
Here is the before and after.

Thanks! I'm thinking about running 35x12.5's, I want it to look beefy but its the daily driver so I don't want to go huge. Needs to look proportionate.

My 99 F-250 must have a camper package or something because even after the 2" level kit the rear still sits a little higher.

Before this truck I had a 97' F150, and the rear sat about an inch lower than the front, so I got a 3'' add-a-leaf for it that i never used, i just put that leaf in the front of this one, and it worked out perfect.

That easy, huh? I'm interested in leveling out my 250. I was just curious about how people accomplish it.

Yeah you don't really need a leveling 'kit'. You can measure the distance from your fender to the center of your wheel on the rear and compare it to the front. Depending on the condition of your U-Bolts and centering pins, you may be able to reuse them. Just need the leaf spring (or two) to combine with your current ones.
