    Do they have adjustable collars on them? How high is it already lifted? You can find the lift height by measuring the center of the axel to the bottom of the fender.

    see the bottom of the spring sitting on the collor? see the thread on the shock body? if you screw the collor up the shock body it will put more load on the spring lifting the truck... but after you do this it will need to be re aligned

    depends on how you want it to look and how high you go up in the front. if you want to level it after then yes add a leafs NO BLOCKS just in case you even thought about them lol but that should be it just be careful with cv angles and ball joint angles... if they look like they are binding its too high. make sure to check both top and lower balljoints. your cv shafts will also be a weaker link unless you do a diff drop depending on how high you go. camburg makes a nice upper controle arm with a uni ball in it for more angle and longer travel. but not sure about the bottom
