    Should I put 2 inch add a leaf in the front then a lift block in the back or should I go with a regular lift kit with new shocks.

    Well I got a budget of about $400 but I got dual shocks in the front so the procomp lift I have been looking would probaly more than what it says becuase I would have to add 2 shocks to that. thought I might go with the add leafs and save some money and I figure that the add a leafs would be easier to install.

    If your not jumping your truck you can scrap the forward shocks and save yourself the $$$. Mine was duel and now it's single.
