replacement leaf springs

alright, i severely need to replace my stock leaf springs in my 91..... i know i know, replace with stock? but i just cant afford a 4" lift right now like i'd eventually like. and i know the cost differnece in stock and lift wont be much different. but my engine is running really weak and dont think it'll last much longer if i lift it and go with bigger tires, not too mention the cost of bigger tires. but back to the point. replacement springs..... what all do i need? i'm sure just replacing the springs isnt reccomended, new u-bolts? shocks? anything else that is generally advised to replace when replacing the springs? also, will i have to buy everything individually, or is there somewhere i can buy a full kit?

thanks in advance

rc 4" lift same cost as stock replacement? Wont the tires look tiny? that's another $400 - 600 so you dont look like you are running on skateboard wheels... Unless that was the look you are going for...
