The Best One Inch Lift?

I've decided to go all out and lift the front end of my truck by 1 inch. I'm not sure which method I should use. I'm thinking about a BMC Spacer from PMF Suspension. What options do I have and which one is the best?

Your still bothered by the back end being level aren't you? Have you tried adding about 6 50 lb bags of sand to your bed? That way you will get a better ride and get a chance to see if you like the way it sits

Yeah I swear these trucks must be designed that way. Like if you were able to lay the truck body on the ground, it would look as if it were leaning forward slightly. I don't know. I would rather have a slight upwards rake than a slight downwards rake. I thought about using a few 1/4 inch spacers, but I highly doubt going with one full inch would be too much for what I'm wanting to do. Also, after my 37x13.5x20 Toyo's run out of tread, I'm switching to 38x13.5x20 Toyo's, so the extra inch of lift in the front can help ensure that I won't have any contact issues.

the cheapest one you can find.
A spacer is a spacer in my experience with leveling kits. Im sure someone will disagree with me, but thats my opinion.
Truck looks good the way it is. ID rather have an inch of rake though if thats all you have. Soon as you put your boots in the bed you are going to be level again.

Another option I have is to get a smaller block in the back. That way I'll maybe have a slight increase in bed accessibility...

Ford Fabricated Lift Blocks

I still have more contemplating to do, but I definitely want to do something.

If you have an F-350 and decide to remove the rear block's, I will be happy to take them off your hands.

I think it looks great as is. Love the wheels/tires/lift combo. Not fond of the tail light guards, however. I think removing them would make it look cleaner. Just my preference. More is better sometimes!
