Superduty F-350 4x4 Small Lift

I want to raise my f-350 4x4 7.3 about 2 or 21/2 inches. I am thinking 'bout doing a levelin kit in front and basic spring lift in rear. I drive this thing HARD. any help, advice, or reccomendations are highly apprecated.

I think you can do a reverse shackle lift for that amount of height and keep ride quality.

My truck is a '02 f-350 crewcab stroke 4x4. It does have a slight rake. Has about 1 7/8 factory rear blocks.

never heard of a reverse shackle kit for the 99+ SD... i have seen them for the OBS trucks. the cheapest way to get your front end up higher is a add a leaf.... i can get you either a superlift or skyjacker... superlift being the more inexpensive one
