Another Leveling Kit question

Lets say you have 250-300 bucks. Which leveling kit would you go with, and would it be 2" or 3".


I cant decide.

I went with the 2.5" tuff country spring pack (it actually lifted my front end over 3"). I've had it on over a month now and I'm still waiting for it to settle (if it does). also, it didn't make the ride any stiffer than it already was. I picked it up for $280 which included shipping. I think if you want a hanger / shackle lift you'll be spending well over $300.
