Leveling kit question

I have a 2015 Silverado 2500HD LML. I put a bumper brush guard on it and now it is definitely unlevel. I need to raise the front end about 2 inches. What is the best way to do this? Was looking at the Cognito TrimmLine 2" leveling kit. I'm attaching a pic of what I think it is that I need. Is there a better way to do this or am I on the right path so far?
And should I get a realignment after this?

Thanks for any help!

The best way to do it is to get a lift and turn it down.

Would like to level my truck without having to buy a lift kit.

Replace upper control arms with after market ones, replace shocks with longer ones, or shock extenders, install diff drop spacers to keep cv angles correct, crank torsion bars to level, get a wheel alignment.

Thanks rockn69! I watched lots of youtube videos on what's best to do, but most of them were on 1500's with coilovers. I did here something about doing what you suggested. So you have solidified it for me. Thanks again!
