Two main types of lifts. SUA: spring under axle, which is the stock location. SOA: spring over axle, which is the spring rest on top of the axle. For that most folks reuse their stock springs or get new springs close to stock height. How much lift do you want?

Rough country has a 4in lift for $450 on eBay and it comes with everything you need. If you call the number on the page and order on the phone they will take $50 off. If you want more lift you can order the 2in shackles and and make it a 6in lift, that's what I did.

Looking for just SOAP then not much of a lift if the springs are resting on the axle that would be fine

If you can weld and use a grinder then I'd suggest soa. It will give you about 5.5in with stock springs/shackles. Other wise just do a sua and call it good.

I did a rancho 4"sua lift took about 6 hrs. they said it would take 8 hrs. moving brake lines is pretty easy for under $450 on line.
