choosing a lift kit.

can't decide on a lift kit for the life of me. so many options and combinations. however i'm lookin to do it right but not drop a ton on it. currently right now im just running some 2" ebay spacers that i got for 40 bucks so my truck sat level for the time being now i'm finally going to do what i had planned and buy a nice 3 inch but can't decide. would like to go billys like everyone else but don't know how to get the 3" out of them other than top spacers and don't know but could you run ome coils? and for the rear i hear mixed opinions on blocks and AAL other than those 2 options i have found skyjacker and pro comp lifts for dirt but other than 1 guy on here running the pro comp who likes it i have no opinions on those 2 for our trucks. just looking for some help thanks guys

I ran the procomp lift. I liked it but it was stiff as hell. The 5100 shocks are adjustable so you can get the 3in of lift. IMO the 5100 would be better. Its a bit pricier but the ride quality is like night and day. Also go with AAL, blocks are crap and I heard they are bad for your leafs.

I've heard you can run 5100s with OME springs (heard it from Chris4x4 IIRC). The springs that are supposed to work with them are the Eibach springs. For the rear you will need new shocks, 5100s would work. Also an AAL is the rear best lift option besides a new leaf pack. If your stock leaf pack isn't worn out then an AAL will be fine. Blocks are shit.
