I did that yes, used a coil spacer but you will end up having to get longer brake lines probably unless you dont care that they stretch a ton, also i ended up saving myself a headache and got an adjustable track bar because when i raised it the axle was off center by about an inch with the stock one on there.

I have an 08 F350 with the 6" fabtech lift. My truck now sits level front to back. Why to do you want to add the level kit to the front? Why not just go with an 8" lift?

Yes it sits like an 8" mine is actually like 8.5" total it cost me like $400 after the brake lines and track bar.

I went with a 2.5" spacer though. if you go 2" you may not need a different track bar.

If you put the 2" spacer on the front, what do you do to the rear to lift it?

Well you can just go with a bigger block. the best idea but a bit more expensive is the PMF traction block from Trevor.
Or a leaf pack or just a add a leaf. the rear you have many options.
