    I if you have a 4x4, Deaver Springs in Santa Ana has a spring pack for the front and am pretty sure they install them as well. Awesome product and great customer care.

    Betcha can't stop with one....

    You got some options, keep your eyes open for used stuff since most of us just can't stop modifying things.

    The DR (now Icon) mini spring pack will level a (99-04) 250, and almost level a 350 since the 350 has a slightly taller stock block in the rear. The mini pack is an easy install and does not require a shock change, although you should just to improve ride quality overall (not to mention if your 2000 has stockers they may be shot). The 2 inch mini pack does not give more travel, but does increase ride height.

    The DR/ICon 3" spring hanger requires a bit more work to install and will level a 350. It will not require new panhard but will need shocks. You could still do the panhard, especially if you are like me and likely to raise it some more.

    You can also get a boost in the front by swapping your stock springs for Ford xcode springs that were an option (snowplow) from the factory which are available, they will ride stiffer and add a bit of height. The previous two (mini pack and hanger) methods will add some height, and not change your springs at all.

    I started with the 3", then added the 2" pack, now have 6" all spring.


    Good luck and keep an eye out for used deals. Just never reuse ubolts and understand you get what you pay for, although many members here have quality stuff.

    Deaver, as mentioned above, makes some good springs. Those are the only ones I can speak for and I like mine.

    I never understand when people say "rides as good as stock". Mine rode like crap stock and has never felt better than the Deaver Springs (oh, and some weight in the bed/rear tank).
