Leveling Kit ?? Hanger Kit vs New Springs

I'm looking to do a leveling kit on my 2002 F250 CC 4x4. I've been primarily looking at either the Rough Country Hanger kit or the Full Spring pack kit shown in the links below. Which is the best to go with for overall ride and stability?

I've also seen those mini pack kits, but I'm real skeptical about those. Seems like adding a glorified block to your front axle which I know is bad. Any information as to why this is not so is appreciated as well.

Hanger kit:
2.5" 99-04 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty Hanger Lift Kit - Top Gun Customz

Complete Spring kit:
2.5" 99-04 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty Lift Kit / F250/F350 - Top Gun Customz

Hanger kits will ride better than any other option as they will increase travel without changing spring rates. Mini spring packs..not talking about the crap on ebay are a great way to get a 2-2.75" lift and also retain factory length shocks unlike hangers that should have longer shocks. Either way a adj tract bar or correctly made drop bracket must be used.

Spring kits like the Rough Country get their name for a reason
