Default 93 f-150 wheel sizes, spring ?

i just bought a 93 f150 6 cyl. 2wd problem is it looks grandpa style,
low in front, high in back, little as 235x75x15's on it.

id like to level teh truck out a little better, doesnt have to be perfect but a little higher in front would be nice,
need suggestions, cheap ones are best.

also id like to get rid of the gokart wheels on it and make it look a little more manly looking,
so id like to run a 17 inch rim, question is will a fx4 rim like off a newer truck work? bolt pattern same? rub issues?

any advice on how to make this truck look more like a man truck with out saggy balls. would be a big help.

thanks guys

If you want to do it on the cheap, get the front springs from a 3/4 van, possibly 1 ton depending on how much lift you want.

Rims from a 97+ Ford truck will not bolt onto the 96 and older. If you want 17" you can check out dodge rams since they will have the same bolt pattern, but I am not sure of the back spacing. IIRC 32" is the biggest before you get severe rubbing while turning, so you will need to calculate what size tires you will need. When you put bigger tires on that truck, your speedometer will be off.

Just my opinion, use it as it is and save your money for a better truck.
