A cheap way to get started is a 1-1.25" Body Lift for about $100. Then add springs later.

Another way to go is a 2" Budget Boost spacer lift. Basically 2" pucks that sit ontop of your stock springs. (~$100)

3rd option is to get 2" springs like BDS.

Basically when you go above a 2" lift, then you need to get shocks and links.

Oh and there are lots of people out there that run a 1.25" Body Lift and 2" Budget Boost with stock shocks and links. Basically 3.25" of lift for $200.
