For one or two inches can't you just add an extra leaf in the rear and crank up your torsion bars in the front?

Torsion bars sag back down after a while. The "crank" is not very permanent.

Wow I didn't realize those were that cheap. Yeah thats got to be all around better then the BL.

If i was you, I would do both. $700 is not bad at all for 7 inches+- of lift.
