It took almost 4" to get my F-350 completely level.

I have just over 4" lift total and the truck sits a touch high in the front. Between .5"-1" higher in the front depending on how the suspension settles when park I guess. Its different every time I measure.

I have a full-length add-a-leaf and a Zone mini spring pack with the smallest plate removed. Sits perfect with 35" tires IMO.

Is a taller tire going to let back under the carport?
