Leveling truck at all four corners???

I have an 05 F350 4x4 and I'm wanting to put either a leveling kit or a lift kit on. I know these trucks develope a lean to one side(usually the driver's side) over time. My questions is what kit(s) can I use to level/lift the truck both front to back and side to side?

I measured from the ground to the bottom of the fender well and from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender well.

Front to back: 3 1/8"DS-3 7/8"PS difference

Side to side: Front 1/8"-1/2"
Rear 7/8"-1"
Where do I need to go to find the parts to correct both the lean and level?

If I were that worried about it, I would try some new coils up front to correct the lean, then focus on a leveling kit. Then again, a 4" lift should come with new front coils. That would kill two birds with one VISA swipe.

You can also get new coils in the 2.5" version, which is the more common 'leveling' height. I have a set of Icon springs sitting in my garage that will be going on my truck in the next couple of weeks.

Not sure if anything can be done on the rear... one thing you could do is install a set of air bags and keep a little extra pressure in the driver's side if it was leaning enough to notice.

I may have to just do a full suspension kit and hope the new leaf springs will take it back to level. Of course that lead to new wheels and tires and on and on.....I feel the big D coming!
