Thinking about lifting my 96 3-4 in

Hi im thinking about lifting my 96 3-4 inches what would you guys advise lift wise also do kits usually come with everything i would need. Then I would also like too ask for any of you that have done this being a diesel and having the extra power will it hurt my fuel mileage or will it not decrease that much. I had a 96 silverado and it had 35's and it did absoulutley horrible and i just do not want to get back into that predicament. Also being a diesel the front end parts are built a little more tough so if i do a little lift and not so wide tires will it kill my front end ( like what happened with my silverado) i replaced on it upper lower ball joints, pitman arm, idler arm, tire rod ends, everything it was quite the mone pit because it had 12.5 wide tires probably. Any infor would be appreciated thank you.

What do you have ? A sig really helps get good answers.

You will lose MPG's but they can be got back by other mods..intake and exhaust plus a chip.. correct Inj's and tunes can get you both more HP and MPG's..

IMO..save your $$ and get a D60 with a RS kit and SD springs..more $$ but will ride better than a SD and won't constantly be needing repair..
