NEED LIFT HELP

Sorry im new at this but, I have a 04 Powerstroke and its a FX4, now looking at lifts. Was wondering if anyone can help me pick a 6" kit thats not going to beat the hell out of me and not break the bank. I know I can't expect much with a straight axel but would really like a half way smooth ride.

You can easyly have a great ride quality with leaf springs..just need quality parts..Best riding kit would be using 4.5" hangers with X codes and 5" rear Icons in the back with correctly valved Bilsteins. Will ride better than stock

I'm clueless and just learning about the SD's. Kinda lost on the whole hangers and x codes. Where do you find these?

thanks

Hangers replace the stock front spring hangers. X codes are Ford springs and provide a additional 1.5-2" lift
