Can I affordably Lift my Ex

I have a 2001 PSD 7.3 Excursion 2wd.

The front suspension is starting to sag and I would like a little lift.

I was thinking about 4 inches but I can not find many kits that are not for 4x4.

I know having a 2wd, diesel 7.3 doesn't give me a lot of choices but I wanted to see what other owners with my same specs had. (any photos whould be helpful)

What should the average cost for the kit be and how much should I expect to spend in installation. Also do I need helper bags? I tow about 7-8k back and forth to the track and ocassionally the boat in and out of the Marina.



Thanks

Yeah, tons of options for 4x4s but our 2wd don't get much love.

I guess I will call TopGunz so I can help support his mean car habit (for those of you that have not seen the owners garageJust plain Sick!

Thank you very much

I have since blackened the side steps front and rear bumper pads.

This is the height I think I am looking for
