2wd front lift kit

I want to get some of those coil spring spacers for the front of my 94 f150. would you guys think 2.5 inches is too much, should i go with the 2 inch blocks? also, do you know what camber kit i should get? i put some springs from a 3/4 ton truck on, and there was no change in ride height.

i had a 1992 explorer that i put the 2 inch coil spacers on, and it through the camber off very bad. i didnt know i could get adjustable camber kits so i just took the lift off.

why would i jump a 1994 f150? im trying to get it to sit level. the front end needs to come up at least 2 inches if not more to be level. plus im putting 1.5inch blocks in the rear

it wont be level when you haul a load. thats why they sit higher in the rear, because they are made to haul stuff. not a kia it says in the manual i belive.

Just get coil spacers off ebay and adjustable camber bushings from Bronco graveyard or something and make it happen. It's a quick job, took me less than 2 hours to put them in.

So any adjustable bushings will work? Ok. I didn't know if there was a specific degree camber set that I needed

You won't know the degree until you get it put together. Unfortunately they're all different so it requires adjusting.

Ok thanks man. I found those adjusters. Do you think 2.5inch would be too much for the stock parts to handle? I know 2 inch would be fine. Plus my springs are sagging for sure.... Maybe I'll go with the 2.5 lift spacers

I've never seen 2.5 spacers. I'd be worried about everything being way off at that point, the pitman arm wouldn't reach among other things. If you're really wanting to get her up in the air right, I'd suggest saving up and just doing a 4" lift kit.

Lifting a truck can be complicated so just remember the more lift you go with, the harder it will be to keep properly aligned.

Thanks for the help man I really appreciate it. That's the feedback I was looking for. I may just have to save up for a full lift

I may jump up to a 4" lift in the future and throw in some 35s but I have other priorities right now unfortunately.
