Im getting some procomp full leaf replacements. They are 2.5" over the way the truck sat brand new, which my current front leafs are flat as a board! That is what 4 wheel parts recommended for me. He showed them to me and man they are a nice pack of springs. I think there are 5 leafs per side. That would be my recommendation. $250 for the pair.

I took mine into Spring Works and they added a heavier leaf & re-arched the two stock leafs. I rides like a dream & is real nice to see them smile for a change. $400.00

I have a add-a-leaf and a 4pack mini spring pack. Its 3.5'' combined. So i added another inch to the back and it sits fine. But yours being a 350 you wouldnt have any problems sitting high in the front.

Mini spring packs allow use of stock length shocks but will not give additional travel. hangers will but require longer shocks. Add a leafs stiffen the ride and re-arching springs will just sag in time.

All ways of lifting will require a proper drop track bar bracket or a adj track bar.
