i agree, my 2000, i got the Summit Racing brand (cheap but good) and it was the leaf pack add kit, took a couple hours to install, came with the track arm bracket, was about $300 i think. mine rides better now than before (but i also put on all new shocks). i made sure i got the rancho 3" lift shocks for the front too. i definately reccomend that.

Best is always a hanger lift as you retain the factory spring rate, you also will end up with a better ride quality.

PM if I can help you with lifting your truck..everything needed to do it correctly.
