I purchased the Rough Country add-a-leaf from a local off-road shop for just under $100. Been on the truck for a few weeks and so far I am pleased.

Had the Rough Country 2.5 on mine for over 6 years and have no complaints at all.Rides good!
It even came with the heavy-duty track bar mount and I got a full 3" lift from it,but had to get longer shocks due to topping out on bumpy back roads
Easy bolt-on kit!

You must measure to determine what to get..hangers come in 2, 2.5, 3, 4.5" all require longer shocksw and either a correctly made drop bracket or a adj track bar.

X code SD springs will get you 2" and increased ride capacity..need shocks etc.

Mini spring kits..from 1.75" to 2.5"..quality not the crap thats on ebay. All can reuse stock leanth shocks but still need track bar or drop bracket....its Geometry ANYONE who says differently flunked their classes and should go back to school.

Above lifts will not degrade the ride. Add-a-leafs will and also lift springs.
