lifting a ford truck back up??

Hey guys

Ok here is what i got,,
I just bought a 96 ford f150 ext cab short bed 2 wheel drive.... this truck is lowered im thinking about 5in and i want to raise it back up to normal ride height but i dont know a thing about ford front ends,,, if it was a chevy it would be no biggie lol...

All i know is they used a Belltech lowering kit, components drop beams, flip kit, also cnotched????? really dont know what all that crap means.

I know in the rear of the truck i think all i got to do is set blocks back on top of the spring to raise it back up i think!!

Really dont know if i got to get different beams or what in the front?? like i said I have never work on the front of a ford truck before

Any help with what all you guys think i might need or need to do To get this truck setting like it should again would be helpful... thanks

First I would find a similar 96 Ford F-150 and compare ...
It could get fairly expensive finding all the stock type parts ...
unless you find someone who wants to lower their 96 and just swap
suspension parts ...

Go to a F-150 site, I would bet that you can find several people that will trade you for stock parts.
