excursion kelderman

i read up on th threads about kelderman lifts on this forum but still have a few questions.

i have 02 X 4x4 107k
I want to make the ride as smooth as possible. If anybody has experience with the X kelderman setup? Im not looking for lifts just regular city driving that will not require back pains like the way truck rides not on the stock setup.
kelderman charges 1250 for front and back. the front and back system is around 3k with leveling and compressor.
Is there any difference in quality of ride between the more expensive systems that they offer?
and how dependable are these suspensions for the excursion?

Thanks

I know the big setups are a whole lot of $$$. Have not heard to much about them otherwise. I would start with a real nice set of shocks, maybe even do a duel setup up front. That will help a ton.

I added bilstein shocks all around and a rear sway bar has helped a lot but still every time I hot a real bump its rattles like hell I ordered a set of new bushings and axle bumbs from energy suspension Hyperflex Master Kit - Ford Excursion 4WD
Energy Suspension Parts: Excursion - 4WD, 2002
also was thinning about adding steering stabilizer. I want a caddy type ride but im thinking that for such a heavy truck it will be hard to do without something like the kelderman suspsension. so im thinking im going to keep on spending money for all different steering and suspension components and the ride is still going to be rough.
