    Pretty much exactly what I was going to say. Although I would suggest new UCAs if you are going with the latter.

    The simplest, least likely to cause any unintended consequences-troubles-issues, lift is:

    Bilstein 5100 shocks set at 1.75" (not 2.5) in the front with a 1.5" add-a-leaf in the back, then put 265/75R16 tires (or 265/70R17 if you're TRD sport) on your stock rims.

    Done.

    Local stores Usually aren't going to have the best prices on the parts.
