Already have procomp 8" lift, need to raise my front end another inch or teo

Hey guys, new member.

I have a 99 super duty, 4x4. I'm already running the 8" pro comp lift, however the rear end sits a good inch or two higher than the front, I'd like to level it out without taking any lift out of the back. What's the easiest way to do this? The truck only gets driven around town so it doesn't get much abuse. I was thinking a 2" shackle and spring hangers to keep the angles right. I'm not even sure if you can use drop shackles with the lift but I don't know a whole lot about lifts, this is my first lifted solid axle truck. Main reason I want to lift the front more and not drop the rear is I already have 40s on the way. Thanks for any help.

Is your truck gas or diesel? Pro Comp's 8.5" lift already uses a 2.5" drop hanger and shackle kit for the front springs. (6" springs + 2.5 shackle kit = 8.5" lift) If your truck already has the hanger kit maybe swap your springs for true 8" springs, so you will end up with a 10" lift or if it doesn't have the hangers add the hanger kit. I saw a kit on ebay for 300.00

It just a gas v10. I actually just got a chance to look at it and it already has hangers, haven't had it long and I work away from home. Who makes a decent 8" spring? Thanks.
