98' 4x4 lift help suggestions

I am looking to get these: http://downsouthmotorsports.com/i-13...djustable.html

I also am thinking of adding some spacers on the front and shackles on the back...Thoughts? and if so what spacers and shackles to go with?

Thanks in advance

someone help me out here...

I know I need to replace my rear shocks. Is there a different route I should go?

There are a bunch of reasons why you should not add spacers to the 5100s. Instead of the shackles, I would go with a Add-A-Leaf kit.

How high are you trying to go and what do you want to do with your truck.?

Only about 2.5-3 inches. I need new shocks in the rear for sure, maybe front too. Just looking for a cheap all around lift. I also thought about this kit:

OR:

What are thoughts on those kits?

another though....what if I was to add some 3" lift springs on the front. Would I have to replace the factory shock up front?

I have to agree. Effective and cost effective. No real downsides, do it once and do it right.

OK so lets say I get the 5100's all around and do the low arch aal. If I decide to go a little higher can I add spacers on the front and shackles on the back and be ok?
