I've got a local shop that will hook me up for like 200$ for custom springs for the front and 200$ for custom springs on the rear....

If you go 9", you need crossover steering. In addition, you need new shocks, extended brake lines, relocate the differential vents, e-brake cables, etc. Best bet is a custom set of springs, or possibly a shackle lift. The shackle lift was how I got my 6.5" lift to 9.5, it worked very well.
