You will need radius drop brackets, shocks, something to lift rear, etc.

At that point you will be better of getting a true 4.5" lift and just loose the spacers.

I agree with Skyd. You'll also have to get something to fix the issue of the front axle shifting, whether it be an adjustable trac bar or a correctly made trac bar drop bracket.

If you can afford to, the 4.5'' lift will be better for what you're wanting, that way you don't have a franken-lift. If not, I'd wait till you can afford to do the whole lift.
