If the rear has been raised 2" then raising the front 2" is going to set it back to the factory rake, just 2" higher all around. Typically our trucks stock are at least 2-3" higher in the back than the front, so this wouldn't come anywhere close to leveling your truck. If it has a 2" lift in the back and is stock up front it must look like a dragster, lol.

To get it close to level you would want to pull the rear block AND add the 2" front lift. That should get you very, very close to level, especially by eyeball. Or you can leave the front stock and order a set of 2" lowering shackles for the rear. Whichever you prefer.

If you decide to level the front I would at least consider the Bilstein 5100 leveling shocks. They are a little pricey but they are also the best. Hope this helps!

Ohhhh and by the way....just saw this was your first post. Welcome to the forumz! If you haven't by now, hop over to the Newbie thread and introduce yourself.
