95 suspension system kit w/no lift

Hello to all,
The suspension on the ol girl is creeking and tired, I would like to give her an upgrade without lifting her any. I looked over suspension kits and I like the 4WDH kit, comes at a good price, like the teflon and urethane inlue of rubber,all parts included,shocks, but do not like to lift her 2".
I did e-mail 4WDH to see if they can put together the same kit with 0" lift, but have not heard from them yet.
Anybody have ideas?

Yep if you want stock ride and height get new stock springs and some good polyurethane bushings like he said. If you want to add to it those bushings will be a lot stiffer then stock worn out rubber ones so you could remove the track bars. If you want some stability and still the flex of no trac bars get a front jks telscoping track bar. Also you could add some quick disconnects too. Disconnect the swaybar and jks telescoping front track bar with no track bar in the rear and you should have some good flex. Could also add greasable shackles. Again for more stability addco has a larger swaybar that you could put on to increase stability even more. The last thing is shocks. Get a nice set of shocks and it will ride great. Skyjacker hydros are known for a good ride.

Thanks for the input,
My focus is 80% highway while towing about 1200lbs and the rest for mild Offroad.
Flex is not an need but a smooth highway ride is; well as smooth as she gets anyway ;-).Greasable shackles was in the picture!
She's riding on 30x9.5" which has smoothed the highway ride some and she runs 21mpg(hway). bought me 2.5 mpg with the 30's and catl'st gone with flowmaster.
Which makes me wonder what would a throttle body spacer and a cold intake would buy me?
Other than parting me from my dollars...LOL!

A throttle body on fuel injected motors dont do a single thing. All they do is make the air travel a longer distance. However on a carburated motor carb spacers do make a good difference. They let the fuel atomize with the air which will increase power. The cold air intake you most likely wont notice much of a difference in MPG and power. It would make it sound cool though. But a nice clean air filter is the way to go. Offroad the cold air will just get clogged up with dirt mud grime and make hydrolocking much easier if you go through water at all.
