One of the best solutions would be to run the moog cc844 front coil springs. They are 250 coil springs and will give you about an inch and a half lift in the front.

That should do it and if that doesn't come up right(on my iPhone) just go to oriellys have them look up the moog cc844 and if they ask what's it's for just tell them 1990 ford f250 2 wheel drive front coil springs. Just make sure you get the cc844. There are other options like the cc822 and cc824 but everyone here runs the cc844 and they like them. They are not to hard to install just as long as you know your way around a car if not just have a shop install them for you. The springs from oriellys run about 100 bucks

Unfortunately, he left out a couple of pretty significant details. If you put these springs on, your truck will ride a lot stiffer. Your front tires will also look like this: \---/

Not good. You will need to install a camber bushing to fix the alignment. You will never get it lined up right without the correct camber bushing.

You might have to do some legwork on your own.

In my opinion springs are the right way to do it. I have Superlift 117 coils on mine. It sits just under level now. It will need an alignment.

The allignment shop will have the bushings that are needed to properly allignment it. Just make sure you soak the top balljoints nuts good with your favorite penetrating fluid a couple times for the day or two before.

Have fun getting that front end aligned afterwards, my local shop aligned the truck in my sig after installing the 844's and it cost me $380.
