Default Body lift on lowered truck?

Hey everyone! I have a question that i cannot find on the internet and seems like nobody knows! Is there a possible way to put a body lift on a lowered 98 f150? I mean i really do not like how it is lowered but putting a suspension lift on it is kinda out of my price range.. So if anyone could answer this it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks -Brandon

Not exactly but it needs new steering knuckles, Ball joints, sway bar links,rear shackles to get it back to stock height, but I was wondering (considering returning truck to stock level is out of my price range) if putting a body lift Kit to basically lift the body so it doesn't look lowered, would work and not look idiotic.. Thanks!

Your idea will help your look of your truck... but to the average person looking at your truck...
They will still be able to tell you still have a chassis lowering kit still on your truck.

I would go ahead and do a small body lift, but keep your eye out for somebody parting out your same generation of truck as yours.
Grab the front spindles and rear shackles.
