Rough Country leveling springs installed

Hi everybody- Been lurking here for a while, haven't done much posting.

Recently picked up a nice '97 2.3 4cyl 5speed for daily commuting. I don't plan for much on this truck in terms of suspension, just a mild leveling kit for now and maybe some 30x9.50 down the line.

I just installed the Rough Country leveling springs and some P235 75R15s. The springs gave the truck a little over 1.5" of lift, but leaves a little to be desired in terms of leveling.

For those with coil spacers (Daystar for example). Are you getting more than ~1.5" of front lift?

Any ideas how to lift the front further without the need for drop brackets? The limit is around 2" correct?

Appreciate any and all feedback!

you have the twin traction beam suspension

which is far superior to the more modern upper and lower a-arm setup

you can easily install up to 8 inch lift springs in the front end
