Not sure if you're still looking at a lift for your '98 F150, but I'd recommend RCD (Race Car Dynamics). I had one on my '98 GMC Sierra and I'm about to put one on my '05 Dodge Ram. I'm very impressed with the craftsmanship, ease of installation, and best of all...improved ride quality over stock. I think that is attributed to their selection of Bilstein shocks for their kits and instead of add-a-leafs or re-arched springs, they use blocks.
Since I'm not a big 'wheeler, blocks don't bother me. It retains ride quality, does not reduce your payload capacity, and a cheap way to raise a truck. Only other downfall besides articulation is axle wrap...but a good set of torque arms will fix that.
I'm not a fan of body lifts at all for the reasons state above. There is a reason they are cheap. IMO, they make the truck look cheap when installed.
