2wd lift kit

Even though it's my work truck I need this thing higher off the ground. Smashed the lower valence today going into a new job site on uneven ground. Plus u can't even get under the truck to change oil etc...i don't need it like my f350 but a few inches would be nice. I found this on eBay and if like to buy it, and issues with these kits with front end wear etc?

You can get an idea of what it looks like by putting a jack under the front end and pushing the body/ frame up 3 inches. Note that the tires rotate out at the top and would cause excess wear......... you just need a front end alignment after the kit is installed.

Reading online I've found that I shouldn't go more than a 2" level kit? If not I'll have to buy adjustable upper control arms?
Then I see a 2" level puck isn't 2" it's more like 1 1/4" of actual lift, and a 2.5" is like 1 3/4"...?

If I was going to lift my 2wd. I would go with a 3" spindle lift in the front and what ever blocks for the rear to level it. That way the rest of the front end stays the same. Of Corse you will need an alignment.

I used the Daystar leveling spacers up front for about $30 and installed them myself along with HD coils and Monroe reflex shocks. Rear just has Monroe load adjusting shocks.

Truck looks and drives good, I'm happy with the set-up. Of course you will need an alignment after doing nearly any suspension/steering work.

I'm lifting my 2wd 04 f250 super duty 5.4l v8. But I can't find anyone who sells extended brake lines for 2wd, they are all 4wd. Is there any difference? Or can someone please point me in the right direction?
