99 4WD Is it lifted?

I am looking at a 99 F250 powerstroke 4wd. My dad has an 02 F350 2WD. The 4wd looks like it has been lifted but cannot see anything on the front end that says so? There is about a 2" block on the rear. It is a lot taller than the my dads 350. Just wondering if the 99 4wd was taller or maybe there is something im missing? The owner said the same, he bought it used and has had it about a year. I'm going to drive it again and maybe buy it. Thanks for any info.

Is it an early or late '99? Generally you can tell by where the Powerstroke badge is, early '99 is on the front of the fender, just behind the head light, late is on the front of the door, lower half, near the crease in the door. The early trucks tend to be taller than the later trucks, as stated in the post above.

A stock truck will have only 2 leafs in the front, if it has 3, or a stack of shorter springs, it's got a leveling kit.

My early '99 was noticably taller than my stock F350 when I got it, and with a leaf added and 35" tires, it's a good 4-5" taller.

I believe it to be a later 99 with a leveling kit. It has 2 long springs and about 3 or 4 shorter ones on the front. Guess I'm going to buy it tomorrow and look into lowering it some.Thanks dieselcrawler, it looks like the red one in the middle. Now how to go about lowering it, will have to search some more. Thanks.

Sounds like it has a mini spring pack up front.

It has at least a leveling kit, factory front springs consist of only two leaves.

I bought it to pull a trailer, bigger tires cost more money. It has a 4" block in the rear and I don't like the sway of the body when I'm driving. I would just like to lower it some not a whole lot.
