front leveling kit for 2wd supercab?

i was looking at the 2" kits on ebay for $50. but they all say no super/extended cab.
i emailed and asked, and apparently the coil springs for standard and crew cab are the same diameter, but the diameter for the supercab is different.

I've been searching here and google, but haven't found: 1) any kits to fit supercab 2wd. 2) any mention of what the coil spring diameter difference is.

Does anybody here have any info?

i suppose worst case scenario i could jack it up, pull a wheel and measure.

I have an 02 F350 that I replaced the front springs in that would raise the front end 1 1/2", not so. I have a set of urethane 2" spacers that I picked up from a shop in the midwest, I'll find it. I haven't got around to installing them. I do have the original front springs, you can have them but unless you are running an F250 with tired springs it probably won't do much for you.

Try this

Ford F250/F350 2" Front Spacer Lift Leveling Kit (w/ Extender Studs) 2WD 1999-2011



Not urethane this stuff is much better

You will need a different type of camber adjustment as you can't get enough from the original, MOOG makes them about $40.
