Personally I would skip the hanger kits and get a quality 4" or 6" lift kit... likely to get better ride quality, and have a system made to work together to lift the truck.

2-3" hanger kits but you will need a drop Pitman arm, drop track bar bracket and longer sway bar links..we have all.

wait-you want to AD an additional 3" hanger lift to a 2.5" leveling kit? WITHOUT a drop trak bar bracket, pitman arm, or sway bar links? You should do the links and bracket with just a leveling kit, a 5" lift without them would be ludacris. Bumpsteer, death wobble, the axle would be sticking out one side at least 3", and the shackles would be rubbing the frame.

and, if you re-used your stock shocks with the leveling kit, they will certainly not accomodate another 3".

Basically, you need to rework your entire suspension. At that point, you might as well get a quality 6" lift and not mixmatch parts never designed to work together.

Personally, I'd get a set of deaver front springs and enjoy a truck that rode like a cadillac.

If you're doing it on a budget, why not.

You really need a 1" adjustable trac bar, not a drop bracket for the stock 3/4"...
