1.5 inch add-a-leaf?

I have a 1997 7.3L ford f250 4wd that is completely stock. I talked my dad into ordering me a leveling kit (im 16) and he ordered a 1.5 inch tuff country add a leaf. I think it will still be nose diving once we add it and I thought we needed a 3 inch because the front is 3 inches lower. Im no genius so Im not sure. I would also like to add 33inch toyo open country mt's and Im not sure. Help me out? thanks

I've got a tuff country on mine, if you have worn springs it won't level out but it will raise it a good bit. Also makes the ride rougher. I fit my buddies 31's on my truck, that's the biggest I've ever run

thats all your going to get out of the ttb, anything more than 2" is going to require drop brackets in the center.

with a add a leaf up front it is going to ride harsh btw....the ttb(said you had a 250) leafs are already negative arc, which is normal for ttb.

honestly if you want more lift i would start looking for a dana 60 and do a RSK, if you cant find one PMF makes a RSK that is offset to allow you to bolt in a superduty dana 50/60 from a 99-04, then you can run the better superduty springs or F350 front springs

I used a add a leaf years ago and it was horrible. It made the suspension so stiff that the frame was more flexible. I soon had dents behind the cab from the bed hitting it from frame flex. It raises it alright but WOW was it stiff.

No they did not stay on truck for long.
