i know NOTHING

when it comes to getting lift, been trying to catch on, but cant understand anything past a bl. but i dont want a bl. so i have a 2003 XLT reg cab 2wd. i've read everything about add-a-leafs, spindles, torsion bars, coil spacers, etc, and still dont quite get it.

if i want 1-2" of lift for as little money as possible, what do i do? what CAN i do?

oh and i'm a newb so i dont even know, do i HAVE torsion bars or is that only 4x4s? can i use coil spacers up front? and how could i fix camber afterwards? (or prevent it from being screwed up)

i'd do a body lift, because everyone seems to say it's easiest, but separating the bed from the frame and then the cab and everything that comes with that, (not even bumper relocation, but thats another issue) just doesnt appeal to me.

help? i figured i'd ask the professionals

You have coil springs so yes you can use a coil spacer or a full replacement lift coil.
