Early 99 Leveling

I have an early 99 F-350 Dually . It is 5 5/8 " higher in the rear than the front . I was going to lift it but I think I might just level it due to the fact that just leveling brings the nose up 5 5/8 " . So I guess the question is how do I go about this ? I don't see a 5 5/8" leveling kit anywhere . 2 1/2 " but thats a little short . Any suggestions .

07 F-250 Outlaw , Rough Country 6 inch lift , 37-13.5 R20 Nitto Mud Grapplers , MBRP 5" Exhaust , 08 Mirrors , S&B intake , 5% Tint sides and back , 35% windshield .

I was in the same dilema about my '01. I put a jack under it to level it and measured about 5.5". Someone explained what's wrong with that thinking, but I don't remember the details. So, I got a leveling kit from JACK-IT LEVELING KIT and it made it sit perfect.

Do you remember measurements before you leveled it by chance . Mine is 38 inches to middle of front fender and 43 inches to the middle of the rear . If not does anyone have a stock early 99 dually that they could tell me what theirs measures ?

No, sorry I don't remember the specs. It was in '02 when I did that.

But, this is the truck bone stock...




And this is after the Jack-It kit install.



I think it would work for you myself.

My early 99 sat about 5" lower in the fron than in the back. I bought the 2.5" Rough Country leveling kit and it sits perfect now. It actually sat a little higher in the front than the back but it's settled and now it's level

Thanks for all the input and the pics . The white truck (in the stock pics) sits just like mine now . I'm going to level it or maybe just a 4 inch lift . Going to make a decision tonight so I can order tomorrow .

I would personally go with the 4" lift. But, hindsight is 20/20
