Default How can I lift my 91 f150 about 4in up

I have a 91 f150 long bed 2wd and I heard I could take the coil spring off of a f350 and put them on my front and put a 4in steel block on my back will this work? And will the f350 spring rise the front 4in?

There is more than just doing the coils in the front. You should just go with a 4" lift kit.

If the f350 gave you 4" lift you would need new shocks, drop pitman arm, drop brackets for the TTB, drop brackets for RAs, etc..

4" blocks in the rear i would never recommend.

Look into Add a leaf or shackle flip.

I'm trying to get a lift without the high end cash I've only seen theses kits for about 800 and I'm really not looking to spend that

Cheap suspension lifts are a contradiction in terms, especially with the front ends in older F-series.

If you want to lift and don't have a lot of money you might want to just go with a Body Lift you can get 3" cheap

I want to fit bigger tires and plus where I live I have to get through the mudd to get to my house and it can get deep plus I'm all about off road mudd and all but I don't have a 4x4 I have my 2wd and me and it has grow together so I see a lift will help and I think it will look better plus I had some f350 parts such as coil springs to put on but I don't know if it will really raise it and I'm a welder so I got a lot of spare 4in blocks I wanted to sit in there

2wd with a locker in the rear can get you pretty far down muddy roads. I lifted my 2wd and don't regret it a bit. IMO a 4" lift is just enough to make it look like I think a truck should look without sacrificing gas mileage and street manners, plus as old as these trucks are I wouldn't call replacing worn out suspension parts a waste of money. I have a Jeep for wheeling, I just wanted a cool looking tow pig.

Please excuse the junkyard camo, getting her ready for fresh paint. Which would be pointless to do if she was a wheeling rig. FYI I used a 4" Rough Country kit, only around $500 shipped and that includes shocks, brakelines, and a steering stabilizer.

No there is a lot more than just swapping springs out you need to do to lift the front end. If you want a lift and have no money a Body lift done right will be all you need.
