I have an E99 F250 with 4" blocks in the rear and long rear shackles on the front. I was thinking about going to a Pro Comp 4" front spring and factory shackle. Is that going to make the front higher than the rear?

no, it should set it about right. I used lift shackels combined with custom diesels add a leaf pack and it set it level and didnt ruin the ride quality either. bigger springs will increase ride harshness. plus, it should be cheaper than doing the pro comps. also, you will need to look at replacing your front track bar with a an ajustable one. they dont make an adjustable one for the E99s. you will have to buy a regular one and drill out the hole in the ends to fit over the studs on our trucks. i havent changed my trac bar yet, but its driving ok.

My issue is that my driveers side is sitting about 2 inches lower now and the spring arch is reversed. Thats why I was just going to start over with new springs.

I just measures my shackles and they are 9 1/2 inches to center of the bolts. LOL I love some of the things the POs do to these trucks. So thats about 4" of lift from the shackle? Can anyone measure the stock shackle for me?

i dont have my stock shackles anymore....or if I do, I have no idea where they are...

and if one side is that much lower than the other, it could be a combination of a blown shock or spring issue all together....i guess it might be better to just order the pro comps.
