    I have a 2001 international 4700 that I need to lift the front about 2"
    to 3".

    This truck has a vacuum tank on it and slopes to the front.
    Since it slopes to the front we can't fill the truck completely.

    The rear springs are air so I plan on doing dump valves to lower the rear
    when we are loading the truck, but I will still need a couple inches in
    the front to be safe.

    It has the Dt466e and a 8000lb spicer i-80sg front axle.

    A spring shop wants $1000 to do new springs but I was
    hoping to get some ideas on a cheaper way. The load won't change at all just need the height.

    Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

    Adjust the leveling valve on the back to lower the back if you want... Dump valves should be more than enough though and I'm surprised it doesn't already have them
