Leveling kit for 06'

What is a good leveling kit (spacers) 2 inch or 2.5 inch, How is the ride quality and will I need new shocks, any positives or negatives about the leveling kit,

I was thinking 2 inch up front and 2 or 2.5 blocks in the back, what do you guys think. Any pictures would also help.

I did one on my 04, course I have leafs up front and not coils, but I was able to use the same shocks. The ride is the same. I would think your ride would be the same since it uses the same coils as you already have. Depending on how your truck sits now, you may not need rear blocks. But, it is always something you can go with if you just want it a little taller.

I like how it sits now, but I just want it a little taller all the way around, thats why I was thinkin rear blocks.
