I don't sell add-a-leafs but have Hanger kits and mini spring packs both will ride better.

hanger kits or different springs will give you the lift basically.

shackle kit is good and cheaper than a lift kit, 2" Shackle Leveling Kit might need longer shocks/brake lines, I have the mini spring pack and like it, (it's temporary till my tires wear out, then I'm going with 4" springs), but it mounts under the leafs which retains the stock springs/shocks and gives ya 2.5"

Hangers retain the same spring rate and give you 2" of additional compression..so they will ride better. Mini spring packs won't get you additional travel just lift. add-a-leafs change the spring rate ..stiffer and get you additional travel.

i have shackle lifted 2 superduties, nothing but the shackles was needed. i put a 2 inch shackle on my 99 and was advised i needed a drop bracket for the track arm. so i got one and after over an hour of trying to get the bar to fit in the new drop bracket, i gave up and put the original bracket back on. there was only a very minimal shift in the axle. so now i have a drop bracket sitting in my garage...... anyone need one?
