Leveling kit suggestions. i need new springs

Well, I don't really NEED new springs, but I got a 180k on the truck. Still sits pretty good, but the front leaf spring bushings are worn. They bump around a lot and squeak. Only 50 bucks for the bushings, but 80 bucks to put in front and 80 in the back. Plus 150 to align the thing.

So.... the salesguy at the suspension shop had a procomp leveling kit with new spring and shocks for 400 bucks. Seems that that it wouldn't improve ride much and I read that it can cause vibration at 30mp in 4H.

I also saw the rough country lift with a new track bar, new springs, and shocks for 400 also. Any thoughts or other suggestions?

Other option is to buy the bushings and try it with a buddy, but it seems like a huge pain to take off those springs and press em out. I am not that handy.
