Lift options-'99 F-350

I want to bring the front of my '99 F-350 up probably 2.5", and the rear probably 1'' to 1.5''. Not really going for the level look just not so raked and a small lift. I tow a 30' fifth wheel, so don't want it to sag.
Just wanted some info on what experiences members have had and what kind of ride characteristics I can expect with different setups. It is the truck in my sig. Pics would also be greatly appreciated.

i have replacement pro comp front leaf springs and f350 blocks in the rear.
i also bought pro comp es9000 shocks and i think it rides better than my dads stock 2000 f250.
the f350 rear block is 1" inch taller than the f250 block.

you could also do an add a leaf system that just packs more leafs under the stock ones.
im sure someone who has experience in the other systems will chime in.
the rear is still higher than the front so if i tow something it does not squat.

Your truck has a really good stance, I was looking at maybe doing a tuff-country rear add a leaf, or maybe a taller then F-350 rear block.

I now no this is a big no no. But when I first bought the truck in my sig. I put 2" blocks under the front springs been running them for about 6 months np. Mad the blocks myself from 1" steel. Drilled the whole for the pin and welded in a pin in the bottom. Works great plan on fabing up some 4" shackle lifts for front and 4in blocks in back.
