Lift kit for a 2002 2wd F-150

I just bought a 2002 2wd F-150 and would like to level it up. Here are the questions I could use some help with:
First, how much lift does a 2002 2wd model need to sit level. I've read a lot of forums and measured my truck and I'm thinking 1.5" but I'm still unsure. I know lift kit brands vary on how much lift they actually give you so I guess that's what is making it hard for me to decide.
That leads me to my next question. What type of lift would you recommend? I've looked at many different spacers but is this the way to go? If so, what is a good quality spacer that is possible to install without air tools or a spring compressor?

Original, they're 2" higher in the rear. LMC sells leveling kits.

You could also lower the rear 2". That's an easy job. Same place as CatSkinner mentioned.

Thanks for the input! I came across the Rancho 2" quick lift shocks while doing some more research. Would there be any advantage to going this route as opposed to spacers? I believe these shocks come ready to install so I wouldn't need a spring compressor, right?

Might, but they don't list a 2002 F150 kit. I'm thinking you're going to need a spring compressor.
