help the 2wd guys out!

I have a 2wd 03 and i want to fit 35's preferably. I know a leveling kit wont cut it at all. So are they are other ways to get the front raised without spending 800$ on a lift kit? My rear doesn't need a lift at all and if it does i will throw a f350 block in there. I feel like the lift kit is a waste of money because the rear doesn't need it. I looked up the exact parts from the kit i want, and the only major differences i see is the drop pitman and taller springs and of course different shocks. But that's not worth 800$ imo

Aren't the springs taller from a 4x4 250? Could i possibly swap in those springs with a 3inch leveling kit. Does anyone have any experience with the 2wds to see what works the best when fitting decent sized tires. Theres like barley any pictures of 2wds with lifts or vice versa

i see what your saying about the ibeams. They will tilted down too much for the alignment to be correct. The k4021b pro comp kit is a waste because i only need half of the kit.
