Newb leveling question???

Where and how do I need to measure to see how tall of a leveling kit I need? I have an early 99 4x4 with factory suspension. Thanks for any and all your help!

3 ways to level one correctly..first you need to measure to see what amount of lift is needed. Measure the front finder opening and lift the frame cross member behind the bumper till you get the look you want. record the difference.

Hanger lifts..2, 2.5, 3 and 4.5"
Mini spring packs 2-2.5"
Ford X code springs, 2 " lift

From the looks of you pic a 2" lift is all thats needed. Hangers give a better ride quality as additional travel is available. Longer shocks..Bilsteins and a adj track bar is required.

Mini spring packs..Icon or Deavers won't need longer shocks but still need a adj track bar.

X code springs will ride just a little stiffer and need the shocks and track bar.

We can set you up with the correct parts for your needs. Please PM if I can help.
