80k on 2002 f250.

I know its hard to believe... but my ball joints are going bad on the driver side. I was going to have this fixed shortly after Christmas. I was also considering doing a suspension lift maybe 3-4 inches in the next year along with new rims and tires and hopefully exhaust and programmer with gauges.
Question: Would it make sense to do the lift now along with any other suspension upgrades? I would love to do an airbag system which I think would help me when pulling a trailer and hauling other heavy loads. Keep in mind, I DO USE THIS as a work truck FIRST. I do not mind spending a little money to improve the looks/sound/Fuel economy/POWER.

Also, any easy ways to fix notorious rust spots on wheel wells? I was considering putting on fender flares to hide it tl I get more money later.

Thanks for any and ALL input or recommendations.

Do the ball joints now before it eats up your tires.

Ways to fix rust spots... LMC sells patch panels (cheap part, but lots of labor and a good bodyguy needed). Or replace the entire bedside ($700 part, but not as much labor). Or buy a new/used bed ($2000 for a new bed from Ford, unpainted, cheaper used)
