Should I buy a lift or get my springs rearched?

Looking to put 35s on my truck in a year or so, 33s look nice but for as big as it is I think 35s would make it look more stout. So the question remains, rearch my current springs and possibly add another one or just buy a kit. If so on the kit where to get one and what to look for?

I do a lot of towing in the summer, so comfort would be a plus.

Thanks guys.

RSk gets my vote on comfort, especially with sd springs

I just put on a 3.5 pmf kit and a 4 inch superduty spring under my 97. The kit was awesome and requires no cutting. I did a lot of looking around and every one suggested pmf just my .02

For the price, I am probably going to look into getting my leafs rearched.
