    Cheap=Spacer lift. You get what you pay for. Look into the Bilstein 5100s everyone seems to like them

    Well what's cheap because you can get a POS lift on E-bay far about 150. and if that's to high for you i suggest you stop thinking about lifting your truck.

    Shocks do not lift your truck. With the 5100's the spring perch it moved higher and lifts your truck. There is 3 settings you can set them to 0 1.75 & 2.5

    Or you can buy new coils as well and set the 5100's at 0 and get lift out of the coils. That is the best way to lift with the 5100's.

    There are lots of options. The cheapest would be a 2.5" Daystar Spacer lift.
    I would recommend at least getting new shocks with a spacer kit, or look into doing the Bilstein 5100s front and rear with an aal.

    If your maximum price in your price range is $600, I would suggest this setup that I have along with what others have.
    Eibach 3" lift coils:
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=121&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
    Bilstein 5100's front struts and rear shocks, fronts set a ZERO:
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=121&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
    Rear Toytec 2" lift AAL:
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...tegory_id=122&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
    All of this is a complete GOOD 3" lift for under or around $600. ;)
