Heavier Coils? or level kit

Hey guys needing your expertise once again.
the story is i bought a superlift dual steering stabilizer. after installing it everything seemed good. until i hit a speedbump and hear a wicked clunking sound. i have discovered that when i get anysort of axle travel the mounting bracket for the stabilizer hits some sort of frame rail.
now superlift tells me that i need to put in a lift kit( or a leveling kit) now i dont really want to level the truck becuase my 250 looks pretty level as is.
so i was wondering if i have to "level the front" would i need new shocks and all that other stuff?
would another option be to go the route of 7000# coils? i hear they lift the front about 1 1 1/2 inches and with a higher # rate my truck wouldnt come crashing down onto this poor mounting bracket like it does now? my ford dealer will sell me 2 7000# coils for 150CAD which is as far as i can tell cheaper than most leveling kits.

thanks and i hope you guys can picture/decipher what i was trying to get at

you could go with the snow plow coils,but the ride quality will suffer,or you could instal spacers on the top of the coils,by the way is the mounting bracket installed correctly?i've installed hundreds of them and never had a interference issue.(maybe post pics)


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

how do i post pics? and its the central stabilizer mount. the one that bolts onto the diff and has a ubolt around the axle... it sticks out (forward) so you can mount each of the other stabilizer shocks to. that piece hits some sort of crossmember infront of the axle.

the "crossmember in front of axle is probably the tierod adj sleeve,have seen a great many bent.
