How about posting pictures of your raised 2wd. Im thinking of raising the front end of my 65 2 inches to level it out.
Thank you.

although not much of a lift, I did raise it an inch. not really into the lowered look, had too many vehicles with worn out springs. I used an add a leaf designed for older jeeps. they are the right width and was the stance I wanted with my old rims/tires. the new ones are 225-70-14 on all 4 and it changed the stance slightly, I would prefer a very slight rake. 31046

Do you have all the leaf springs in your front end? I have some extra leaf springs here if you need some.
Someone added a couple to the '65, also the steering arm has a sleeve welded on it as if to make it longer and the front of the wheel well's have been cut to clear the tires.

A 2" raise should be a good choice. I had new springs made with a 3" over arch. Finding shocks that wouldn't interfere with the sway bar was a no go so made mount extensions. Ranchos the right length got to fat. After time the springs settled down enough to reach the original mounts barely. If not running a sway bar you have more options.
