    If you want to keep the rake in... for towing then I'd go with 2" blocks in the rear. I'd also look into shocks for a 0-2" lift. Stock shocks will work but will be full extend.

    I have been looking at the day star kit which includes torsion keys, shock extenders, and 2" blocks and u bolts for the back. Any thoughts on this particular brand?

    I went with Ready lifts kit for mine... they had the adapter to use the factory shocks... but I went with new shocks. The adapters in my opinion are not the permanent solution. But if you don't have the money for new shocks right away it will get you by.
