in this case no, A lift kit helps with ground clerence, not traction. Your best bet is good tires. It all depends on the mud... No idea, with out being there, what it would look like. FWD actually gets pretty good traction over a RWD car, as the weight of the engine sits on the drive tires. That's why for snow you get best traction from 4wd/awd, then from fwd, and far behind rwd. but depending on how sticky and deep the mud is, it could be too much weight.
1)Get really GOOD tires
2)Turn off Traction control while you're out in the mud. The TC is very aggressive, and will stop you cold when you least expect it.
3)Bring a tow rope and make sure you have at least one tow point on your car, Like a hitch.
Do you have 16" or 17" rims? a very popular off road tire is the yokohama geolander AT/S. you can get them in stock, or very close to stock sizes (so you don't have to worry about rubbing or clearance) I have a FDII, so I'm running 245/65-17 Falken Rocky Mountains and Love them.
You're not going alone, which is the most important part, even if you get stuck, somebody can pull you out (if you have the above)
