Question Making the front level with the back - 03 SuperCrew 4x2

Hey folks, how's it going? I have a 2003 F-150 SuperCrew, 2 wheel drive, and I'd like to level off the front end with the back end. I'm a complete newbie to all of this and need all the advice you seasoned guys can provide.

Where do I begin? Which brand do I go with? What prices am I looking at?

Thanks for your time,
Anthony

EDIT - Almost forgot, I have a brushguard on the front.

yep, there are no torsion bars, they have coilovers, so you cant crank the torsion bars or get some keys.

and a 1 inch leveling kit will leave you about 2-3 inches short.

I think you are going to get some taller spindles, I will take a look for you.

here are some more, but I would not just buy one, because I have no idea if these will actually work, They are just to get you going on what you actually need. The best way to find out is to do some research, and make sure that you get what you want.

what about a simple leveling kit?? I'm also wanting to get one but I'll be lifting the truck soon so I don't want to waste the money on one. My friend got a leveling kit for his Titan and it looked 100x's better
