front lift help

well, i put an add a leaf in the rear because it was getting a little weak. but now my problem is that the rear sits about 4 inches higher than the front and rides like a roller coaster when empty.

i was wondering if anyone had any experience with like a 4 inch lift for the front. i would like something quality, but something that won't break the bank. i really want a good lift, not just drop shackles. any help will be greatly appreciated.

thanks
travis

DR makes a good leveling kit, just make sure when you lift the front to use a adjustable track bar and/or a new mounting bracket.
