Front Lift for a 2wd '99

What everyone's ideas on lifting the front of my '99 coil sprung? I have been looking for just a cheap set of 2" coil springs but no luck. I have been looking at spacers but don't know how safe they are. My plan is to lift the back with expo springs so I need to figure the front out.

I believe I will need a camber kit if I go spacers or coils.

Here are the spacers I have been looking at. I kind of like the first ones better but heard metal ones are better because they won't deteriorate.

I would do just coils and not spacers. Just buy lift coils. But it will ride a lot stiffer and you will blow through ball joints like there is no tomorrow. And wheel bearings with 33's.

But if you drive street maybe it will be fine. I wheeled a lot though.

Also, I have seen people talk about F150 coils but haven't actually seen anyone go through and get them.

That's why I was thinking spacers would still have somewhat the same ride quality. I don't wheel hardcore alot. Just like to play every once and a while.
