F-150 Leveling

Hey, I have a 2006 F-150. I'd like to level the front. Any suggestions on who makes the best leveling kit? Should I invest in the Bilstein 5100 series ride height adjustable shocks instead of just a leveling kit? (the stock suspension sucks) Thanks!

Think of the Bilstein as a leveling kit with a free shock and it makes much more sense.

I installed a Pro Comp leveling kit on my F 150 and the instructions say to use a macpherson strut spring compressor. WAJ. Looks scary when you go to compress it! The spring is much too strong for that compressor.
Fortunately I got King Shocks to let me use their press to finish it off. BTW, I did wind getting some Kings for the front. IMO go with the shock if you can swing it.
