06 F350 with 4.5" DR lift. want to level

I have an 06 F350 with a 4.5" DR lift installed but the front end sits lower than the rear and I want to bring it up to level. is there a way without replacing the lift?

How much do you need to come up?

Add a 1" TEI spacer under the front coil spring mount.

To be that much higher in the rear you would have to have 7-8" of lift back there.

take a measurement from the ground to the center of the top of the fender opening. Take it on the front and on the rear and see what we are looking at.

Do you have lift springs on the rear? Any pictures of the truck?
