    Are they the 5100's? Did they lift the front at all? I'm looking at leveling blocks and would prefer shocks instead.

    Shocks will not add ride height. You can install a new coil over spring and you might get some height that you have lost from sagging . Sure, the truck might look like it sits a little higher right after install, but as soon as you drive it a mile it settles and is back to the height it was at.
