97 F-250 2WD front lift kit

I have been searching for a 2WD front leveling kit for the 97 front 2WD Coil TTB suspension. I can find them ALL day long for a 98 on up but NOTHING for a 97. I just want to get the front to match the back as I really dont like the look of a raked truck. I dont plan on running big tires or pretending its a 4wd. Is there a way that I can level up the front of the 97? Does anyone know what the difference is between the 97 and say the 98 or 99?

Thanks in advance.

So REALLY??? There is not a simple 1.5" or 2" coil spacer for these? Has anyone used a coil spacer for a 98 on this OBS truck? What kind of alignment problems would that cause if it would even fit?

I am from the Solid front axle 4wd jeep world and dont get this TTB crap that ford uses. I LOVE everything about my truck except the high rear end look.

HELP Please!!!!!!!!

I had a truck identical to yours, and always wanted one. Let me find my thread from long time back, I have a link for a leveling kit.

but out of what? that is the issue, everyone around here just looks in a book and goes DUH, I DUNNO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am NOT afraid of doing something out of the ordinary as long as it works and is safe. Like maybe a coil out of another rig that goes in and gets 1.5". My only question would be what alignment issues are we looking at?
Heck, at this point I am about to swap the front end out to a solid beam from a F-350 and leafs. LOL

even with the 6 inch lift its not that tall it would be equal to a 2005 superduty with a level kit and 33's but you would have 35's
