lifting a 3/4 ton

Hey, I have a 98 silverado 2500 4x4 with 8 lug wheels.
I havnt lifted it at all and run 285's on 16x8 wheels. Looks real good, and there is very little rubbing, none on road. anyways Id like to get the front up a little so the truck sits level, and I dont think I want to get a body lift, If I crank the t-bars how is that going to affect the ride, and is there any other way?
also - any reason the ifs is wider then the rear axle?

im not an expert on this but it shouldn't effect the ride much. just be careful that if you do crank it up high to go over bumps slow because you can tear up your cv join(i think thats it).

Yeah, cranking the tbars does amount to extra stress on all those components. If you going to be doing serious wheeling, invest in a serious lift (hi-quality) because you have to pay serious repair fees.
