leveling kit help please

I want to put a leveling kit on my truck, just a 2-3" front end lift...

I have a 1999 f250 Superduty XLT Extended cab 6.8l V10(should be same as the 7.3 stuff) with twin I beam suspension 2x4.

My problem is... i can NOT find ANYTHING that will work. i wanted to get the coil spacer that go on top with stud extender but everywhere i look it says wont fit XLT or extended cabs..... i looked around for extended coil springs.. cant find any. some1 said heavy duty coil springs.. cant find any that will raise truck any.

I have no idea what or how to raise the front. The truck is raking 4-5" so i BADLY need help cause its just raking horrible

Please help..?
Thanks

Are the front springs the same diameters as the 4x4 ones... i have an old set laying around off a 2005, if the the upper and lower diameters are the same it may be slightly longer to give u that lift ure looking for. They are the 4800lb springs off an ext cab short bed
