Parents helping pay for suspension

So I hit 154k km the other day and I need to update my suspension in my 2010 5 lug. Here are my problems

Awful ride that needs to get better.

Cracked rear leaf spring (left)

Shocks that need to get replaced...

So basically I'm a student (getting my architecture degree) and I got the truck new since than it's been all over North America pretty much all highway miles but some off-road.

I use it daily want a good ride nothing that's going to hurt my back anymore than it already does.

And I'd like to get a little higher in the air:

It needs new shocks all the way around new coil springs as well as new leaf springs and shocks on all four corners

Need you're help and will post pics when it's done

Thanks

I would suggest Bilstein 5100's on all 4 corners and Eibach springs for the coils up front. That can all be bought for probably around $400-$500, you can probably pick up another set of leafs for about $100-400 depends on what you're looking for....and install will probably be under your budget

Second for the 4600s. They're on sale right now at 4wheelparts, too. I just picked up a set for the front for $72 ea. (vs $100 a piece at auto zone)
Keep in mind that if you do get a lift you will need longer than stock shocks in the rear.
