How to level front?

I have a 99 F-350 EC 7.3 4x4 and the front is definately sagging, very noticeable. I was wondering what is the best way to level it up and was really hoping to draw on the experience of the members here. I was looking at either 2" add a leafs or 2.5" front spring kit from Rough Country. I am interested in ride quality but also longevity. I would sacrifice the ride for longevity. Anyone have any experience or advice on leveling kits? Thanks in advance for any help.

Here we have a blacksmith that will re-arch your springs for about a 100 bucks. if you could find one that would be the way I would go.

The add a leaf will make a harsher ride.

Thanks for the advise. I was kinda thinking add a leaf would make it harsher but I have never used them before so I wasn't 100 percent on that. I will look around for a decent spring shop but when I did my Jeep a few years ago it cost more to re-arch 4 springs than it did to get them in a lift system but I had the distinct feeling that shop didn't want to bother with me. For 289 I can get a Rough Country 2.5" with new soft ride springs, shocks and u-bolts. I didn't think that was a bad deal.
