    Here is a place to get a really cool shackle flip - http://www.diy4x.com/suspension.htm

    You can also make a homemade one using the front mount for the rear spring of a 1/2 or 3/4 ton 4x4. I just sold a set on here that was under $40 shipped.

    If your springs are in good shape do a shackle flip. Its cheap, relativelly easy and does a good job. Its gonna be hard to lift it 4" with add-a-leaf and a zero-rate. Many of the lift companies sell just rear lift springs. But that could be $300+
