    Depends... If it's a spacer lift, then no. If it's Billys or some other non-spacer lift, then yes.

    yea you cant put blocks up front. A block or leaf(preferrably) is put in the back with a 3 inch lift. A leveling kit is just a coil or top plate spacer or 5100's up front

    You need new friends :D
    My advice is to think about the future in regards to your lift so you can save money over the long run. I would go with Bilstein 5100s rather than a leveling kit. The fronts are adjustable for lifting (0" which is stock, 0.85, 1.75, and 2.5"). Downsouth Motorsports on the Forum has a decent price for TW members. The ride will be nicer plus you can reuse the shocks should you want to do coilovers later on. With a leveling kit, you would be starting over from scratch should you decide to do coilovers (plus you'd probably need new shocks). For the rear, do an add-a-leaf instead of blocks. If you can swing it, the Toytec Ultimate lift is a nice package. If you go the Bilstein 5100 route, you can always get the Front Adjustable Coilovers at a later time (the Ultimate kit's coilovers are just 5100s with the front adjustable coilover and a new top plate).
