From Leveling to Lifting

I have a 2.5" mini spring pack used to level my 2004 F350. That kit also had a bracket that lowered the track bar. My question is instead of forking out $800 or more for a 4" lift kit, can I more cheaply convert the leveling kit.

I know for the rear it would just be 2" taller blocks than what I have and then I am not sure if newer shocks are needed for a 2" increase.

For the front could I add 2" leveling main springs to the mini pack? I used 2" longer shocks with the leveling kit even though they weren't needed. Again would I need them for the additional 2"?

I'm not sure what else would need to be done, such as extended brake lines or a pittman arm (not sure how needed it is with the drop track bar bracket, or if it should replace it.)

I'm sure there may be other things I am missing. I can't justify almost a grand for 2 inches, so I figured I would see if this would work. The first 2 inches only cost me about $250 total.
