99 2WD 7.3 4" lift?

To start out my truck has a FabTech 6" left kit on it now.

I looking for a way to get the front down about 2" or so to 3.5" to 4" of lift. Been looking for springs for ever, I go to SEMA every year for work so I have time to ask all the Manufactures and no one seems to have ever made a 4" kit for 2WD.

Will 4WD springs mount in a 2WD?

Can I put 6" Gas springs in the front and will they live with the extra weight?

Open for ideas. I have thought about cutting the front springs - the issue is bending them after cutting them so they will lock and mount on the truck after.

Products > FORD 2WD > F250/F350 1999-04 > 4" Systems > Basic Systems

cross reference this kit with the 6 inch kit and see what you need to replace, might be able to get away with just ordering the 4" springs

Alaskan thanks for the link - This is the kit they made for gas powered trucks - they say the springs will not hold up to the 7.3's weight. Not sure why they never did the same for Diesel's?

Ok guys. I have a 99 f350 extended cab short bed with a 7.3. I bout it with stock. I put a t's 6 pos, Spectre intake and custom straight pipe. I want to put a lift on the old girl but I'm having trouble figuring out what to put on her. My buddy from michigan suggested hockey pucks under the leaf springs on the axel. ( I know that sounds effing retarded) I am on the budget range for around 250 at most. I have 12 inch long u bolt in the front so plenty of room for more leafs but I wanted to see what y'all would suggest. I would start a new thread but I am fresh meat and don't have the ability to start one yet. Help me out guys cus I really hat the nose dive look and I don't wanna put hokey pucks under my leafs hahahaha. My gf thinks the truck is already sexy as hell but an added lift will make her marry me hahaha.... Hopefully

you could block the front or atleast, try a new set of excursion leafs. maybe that'll level her out.
