Font end lift help,/ advice

Hello everyone i'm very new to aftermarket parts for my 20003 xlt ranger. 3.0 v6

To date. I've put an add a leaf in the rear which i like and couldn't be happier with the results.

and the front I put the Maxtrac 2'' lift springs. which i am NOT happy with
they are extremely stiff and it feels like its bottoming or Topping out rather. ( because their so strong) IN addition i don't feel the spring lifted to the car the whole 2 inches. New and old springs side by side where there same length.

Now my question is are there some cntrl arm brackets and or replacements or some other cheap way around getting a smoother ride, with maybe another ACTUAL 2-3 inches in lift for the front.

I'm not looking to race the baja or anything of the sort i just want clearance for a bigger tire and to look better going down the road. The less I take this thing apart and do it right the first time the better.

Instead of the springs in the front i think you can use f-150 coil spaces. Which will allow you to mantain the factory ride quality.
