Icon 4.5 question

I installed a 4.5" Icon hanger lift on my 99 F250. My front end still seems to be too low and when I put the 35" tires on, I don't have much clearance with my front bumper. I started to look at other trucks with same lift and noticed maybe my front leafs are sagging. I am thinking of replacing the front leaf springs. Does anyone know a good company to get leaf springs from? Pro Comp makes a 2" front leaf, would that be too much lift in the front? Not sure what I should do, but I need more clearance in the front.
Thanks,

How much of a difference do you need? You could add a leaf spacer in order to gain about 1/2"

I probably only need an inch or two. I just noticed that my springs are negative, not flat. So should I replace springs or do an add a leaf?

Zone Offroad mini spring pack. The packs are made up of 5 mini leafs, you can use as few or as many as you need.

I would suggest looking up what your factory spring codes are & order new ones. That is what the Icon 4.5" hanger kit is designed for.

Unless you want more than 4.5" of lift
