ya just go to your local speed shop and order up some lifting blocks and new u-bolts. a set of 4" blocks for my truck were about $50 and about $60 to have u-bolts made up. Id make sure your springs arent shot first though. and look into replacing your bushings while your at it because it will ride much better.

I'm guessing you would want to raise the front, not the rear? At least thats what I would want to do and would consider that "leveling". My 93 looks like some kind of hot rod with the front all dumped down.

haha ya. i forgot to tell you i put new leafs in the front and it went up a good 3" then i put the blocks in the back. i really only need 3" blocks in the back but i ordered the wrong one (4") and by the time that came in the new front springs settled down like and inch. so now the backs up an inch more but once i put weight in the back or put a trailer on it wont look like its a wimp squatting down. a set of 2.5" soft ride front lifting springs were about $250 from skyjacker. i would look at how much clearance you have from your rubber stopper to the leafs in the front. i could barely put my finger between mine. its all up to you if you want to do blocks or leafs for your front. blocks are by far the easiest though.
