    You probably aren't going to find a "leveling kit" for your model since it has leaf springs all the way around, what you will find are lift kits starting at 1.5" and going all the way up to 8" , most of them will be new lift springs or add-a-leaves and a lot of them will include shocks too. All the big lift companies(Superlift, Skyjacker,Trailmaster,Rancho,Pro-Comp etc.) should have lifts of various sizes for your truck, it's just a matter of how much you want to spend!

    Yeah man you are going to get a leveling kit. I just four 6 inch blocks with the u bolts and new shocks to raise my old K-5. You will also need a drop pitman arm but it is alot easier to lift a solid front axel than IFS.

    Check your local area for a spring shop, they should be able to re-arch your springs to get the results you are looking for.
