Adding a front lift shackle and drop bracket.
When I purchased my 04 4x4 f250, it had a factory rake to the front. I really didn't like the way it looked so I added a Tough Country 2.5" add a leaf leveling kit (included track bar bracket). Now it rides cowboy by a bit more than 1". I was thinking of ordering 4" block for the rear (removing the current 2" rear block) and adding a 2" front shackle and drop bracket from Precision Metal Fab. Or will this still result in a higher lift in the front? Obviously I'm adding 2" in front and 2" in rear and I am already higher in the front. Do I just need 5" blocks in the rear? I hope to run 35x12.50x18 on 18x9 wheels.
What are everyone's thoughts on adding the shackle lift to the current setup?
I know I should just take out the current front leaf setup and add a 4" leaf pack but it's so much more $.
Am I endangering myself by doing this? What sort of problems will I run into?
Are there other suspension/steering mods that I need to address.
