6" to Leveled

So I'm taking out my 6" lift and going to a Leveled look... I got the truck with a 4" pro comp lift, and converted it to six (mini packs and bigger block) but i want to go to just a bit higher than stock and some 33/34's.... Is there a better way than to buy rough country's 2.5" lift that comes with new leaf springs? or should i get factory height and use my mini packs? i'm going for ride quality / handling since i dont do any offroading or towing. I do like the stiffer ride but i dont think they make anything other than stiff springs for a super duty

i know i need a stock pitman arm and i'm just going to get an adjustable track bar and ditch the bracket, and i want all new shocks too

anyways any other suggestions? also selling the lift as a 4 or 6 if anyone's interested pm me!

A 2~3 inch shackle drop AND front hanger with a new stock spring may be where you want to go. Top Gun Customz has this set up.

IMO, mini-packs are a glorified block that have no business on the front axle. From my own experience, add-a-leaf in the front spring is a$$ as well. The add-a-leaf tears up the front springs from a poor fit, worse if you insert it between the springs like the idiot instructions say to.
