Lift Kits

Im trying to get a general idea as to how much lift kits cost and which ones to stay away from.. Im not tying to go very high maybe between 2-4 inches just to sit a tad bit higher than it does now and before I add rims and tires... What all has to be done for this?? I hear ppl talking about leaf springs, shackles, spacers etc and im lost! lol Any help with be appreciated

If your only going about 2 inches or so I would do a shackle lift cheaper and you keep the factory ride lift springs are gona be stiffer.Ford Superduty 99-04 Leveling Kit - Sky's Off-road Design these are pretty reasonable.
Good shocks will help if you decide to go with springs though. Guessin you have a Leaf Spring suspension?

If you install it your self, you can probably get a 4" lift anywhere from $800-$1500. My 4" skyjacker with blocks in the rear was $1001 from an online store

that right there is tuff... i have yet to see a superduty with leaf springs in the front not rub with any lift in the front.... the key will be to get a wheel with the right offset.. but even then depending on the size it will rub at full lock....

if your looking to just level off the truck and stick some 34's or 35's you can go with route : 2" Shackle Leveling Kit

if not i would go with this: 4" pro-comp susp. lift 99-2004 superduty
