Lift for a 2005 Canyon 4x4

Hey guys. I'm interested in lifting my 05 Canyon 4x4. I was thinking a 2/2.5 inch lift, so nothing too crazy. My dilemma is I see multiple options for 5 inches or more and they're very expensive. Does anyone know where I could find a smaller lift at a reasonable price?

On a side note, what's the difference between a lift kit and a leveling kit?

Crank the torsion bars. That should get you around 2inches.

But it gives a harsh ride also.

A leveling kit usually is 2-2.5 lift. It will sit even with the rear of the truck.

For 4x. It ain't worth it unless your going over 5 inches in lift. Canyon you can prolly get a 33in tire in there.

A lift generally is same front and rear, but a leveling kit is an offset lift sdo the front comes up more while the back goes up a bit less so the stance is level vs the typical factory rake.
