Awesome looking healthy lookin Burb!
An adder will stiffen up the front end considerably and adding height you’ll likely need to do other things as well.
Looks like your leafs are fine.
Either you want a lifted truck or don’t, as I see it. And if going theirufh the trouble of lifting it may as well do it right the first time.

Not a good idea Eric... you're putting a band aid on an infection. Your front springs are sacked, and propping them up with another spring will virtually have this spring pack fighting against it's self. I would suggest you hang in there until you can find a deal.
New Tough country springs are the best bang for the buck, but also keep an eye on local markets. FB Marketplace and such for used or new-never used parts. Also wrecking yards are good for finding lift springs. I always see wrecked trucks that were on the road to getting rebuilt, and then too much rust or a whatever and they end up at the junk yard with new parts on them.

They have 2" lift set... perfect, great ride and articulation. If you run longer shocks and Ford upper mount, and then disconnect the sway bar you will have amazing droop and off road traction, if that's what you want.
