What tires will fit my F-250 ??

Hi everyone I have a 1990 F-250 (4WD of course)5 speed, 302.
I haul a lot of firewood with it so I got an extra leaf spring put in the rear (a heavy duty one the mechanic said, it is thicker then the others) . This raised the rear about 2 inches but the front is at the original height. What is the cheapest/easiest way to raise the front end up to even it out (I only drive this truck 2 times a month so it doesn't need to be fancy). The next question is once I do raise the front 2 inches (approximatly)what size tires will fit on it? I'm sure 35's will fit allright on the back now. The front tires are 265/75/16 which is equivalent to a 32x10.5 inch tire. Thereis plenty of room to spare the way it is now, so I'm wondering if a 35x12.5 will fit afterwards. Will the stock axles handle 35's allright ?

The front has leaf springs and the rear has 8 leaf springs per side (that includes the extra thick one I had added). Also the guy I bought it from 2 1/2 years ago says it has a 1 ton rear axle, how do I tell or is that normal ???

35s should fit. Find the axle tag and it should tell you.
