level or lift

Been thinking on this one for awhile... Whether to level or lift my f150... if i do lift would be very small like 2" or 2.5"... so leaning towards just leveling it and grabbing some 33's or 32's.

heard a few different ways to level these trucks just looking for some ideas ie budget and/or performance.

some things ive heard are to just throw in heavy duty coils, or to get f250 coils, or just grab rough cuntry leveling coils... im sure all would work like i said just trying to get some more ideas kicking around my head before i pick anything...

Cheers

edit, shoulda probly said its a 1994 f-150 4x4 4.9L L6

level kit, level it 1" higher than back [you can pick the spring height on the leveling kits], then throw some blocks in the rear.
that will give you a 3 - 4" lift

Stay away from lift blocks
Do a levelling kit springs whatever
It's your daily driver so don't get silly lifting it and big tires
Bigger tires =shitty milage and more wear on steering and brakes

i found that I've always gotten better mileage when going from a 30" stock to a 35" tire.

replacing the factory rear blocks with ones 1" taller won't make much of a performance difference

Axle wrap is a big performance disadvantage
And if you are not Geting axle wrap with blocks your springs are to stiff
My dodge has blocks factory and it has axle wrap
It's a one ton and rides like a shoping cart
As for mileage improvement with bigger tires I don't buy it
Heavier tire more rotational mass takes more power to get moving
And more tire on ground = more friction
Only way would be if truck is geared to steep for the stock tires
And rpm is to hi at cruising speed then maybe you might see a slight mileage improvement
