2" Leveling Kit for 4x4 Excursion

Coming from a GMC with torsion bars and A-arms, I'm trying to understand how the Fords are "leveled" and what variations of kits are out there.

I don't want to go cheap/unsafe but I also don't want to spend a ton doing it. Doing it the "right" way, do the front leaf springs have to be replaced or just add new ones? After the lift, do the shocks have to be replaced?

I looked at this RCD kit: RCD 2" Leveling Kit – No Shocks for 1999-2004 - 4wd - Ford - F250 / F350 Super Duty / Excursion - - Leveling Kits - Heavy Duty no sag leveling kits - Off Road Unlimited

Who else makes a good quality safe leveling kit? Do all the F-250 leveling kits also fit Excursions?

I like the Donahoe much better than the RCD, but they are both good kits. You will actually get a better ride quality out of the Donahoe also. If your interested PM me.
