Front End a little low

So I have a 2wd 350 and the front end seems to sitting low, well it is sitting low. I would love to get a lift but dont have $1,500-$2,000 to spend on a lift. So does anyone know where I can get some good springs to bring it back up or even some bigger springs, to lift it a bit like 2". I know I am going to have to replace the shocks as well but needing the springs first. This is going to hurt I know it is but what is yalls take on body lifts? And where can I find them? everywhere I look it says that they cant be used on diesel trucks. If I did do it it would only be 2". Thanks

Re: Front End a little low

yea yea yea I know I bought the truck for $3k. I needed a truck and I didnt have 9k-13k to buy a 4x4. Military dont pay that good for me to have 2 car payments. Eventually I am going to make it a custom 4x4 but for now I wanna make it the best I can.

Re: Front End a little low

I have the same issue with my 2WD. About the only way that i can figure to easily raise the front is to use taller springs. Eaton spring can custum make me 2 inch over stock xtra heavy duty coil springs. that 2 inch is all i need to level mine out. they only want 125-150 a spring i think. They go install justlike the stocks too. Just my to pennies.

Re: Front End a little low

I looked up Eaton springs and didnt see many ford springs so I am guessing I would have to call and ask about it. I would be niceto raise it 2 inches. For 2in longer springs should I get shocks that are for 4in lifts? or would it not work well?

Re: Front End a little low

Call Coil Spring Specialties

they made a custom set of lowering springs for my lightning. I am sure they can do the reverse to raise your truck. Just dont get to carried away with too much lift or you will not be able to align it

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seat for OBS. PM me if any known

Re: Front End a little low

I wish mine were lower! It sits so high everyone assumes it is a 4x4, until they see me get stuck in wet grass

Re: Front End a little low

You could always try these with some new shocks:Moog CC844S - Coil Spring | O'Reilly Auto Parts

They are the stiffer spring/heavy duty rated springs. It should raise it back to stock or a little higher. If that isn't enough you could get some spring boosters. A lot of the F150 OBS guys use them to level out their trucks(4x4).
