Best way to Lift/Level Commander

I just bought an 06 4.7 Commander, what would be the best way to lift the front end up 1-2" where it looks level? Thanks in advance.

Parking on a hill is very effective, as well......

Good to know you guy's are so helpful. I'll go ahead and apologize for them.

Search for a leveling kit though. That should be a start.

Funny responses.

Check out the BDS kit. It is 2" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. My dealer has installed a Rusty's 2" and my BDS kit. He commented on the quality of the BDS vs the Rusty's kit. Sorry, I did not ask for specifics.

Thanks for the links/suggestions, i'm still undecided about what to do but I do have some direction now. Glad to know we have some people with sense of humor around here.

I've never dealt with an IFS setup before, so forgive my ignorance when I ask the question... would coil spacers work if he just wants to level out the front? For instance, say putting a 1/2" or 3/4" coil spacer in the front alone?

Yes, they would work but they would also limit the travel of the strut by the same amount. I'm not sure what the travel of the strut is but I think it's in the 4" area.

Would lifting or leveling my Commander Void my Warranty?

Nothing voids your warranty unless they can prove that the reason the part gave out was the addition or subtraction to the vehicle.

I suggest the Teraflex 2" Lift for leveling it made my 4.7 look great!
