Alignment and springs

I've been wanting to level my front end with my rear....only 2 inches

I've heard of using F-150 springs in the front but i want to know if this would screw up my camber. (1987 2wd)
or i should just leave my truck tilting forward like a hot-rod.....

And alignment....

my steering wheel points about 1 o'clock to go straight
and i would like to fix that
are there any special tools or tricks i would need to do this myself at home?

First off they are coils not springs. Springs are in the rear.

Not sure if F150 coils with fit in the pockets for the ranger coils. You would have to measure both and see. But why not buy some 1" spacers or 1" lift springs for a ranger and then you'll be all set.
