I think I might win a pro comp stage 2 6" lift off ebay tonight for cheap. It's only the front lift though. Does anyone know about how much some rear leafs to match this front lift will cost? And to make it level, should I get 4" leafs or 6"?
have you ruled out blocks? thats the cheapest way to go
Yes blocks. Much cheaper and doesn't affect the ride. If it's a 6" front lift you want a 4" block to level it out. Most manufactures make a rear block 4" kit that includes the blocks and the u bolts. You may also need to get a rear driveshaft shim kit.
5 or 6" lift springs will run between 300-450, get the greatest amount of leaves you can as most replacement springs will not have the same load capacity, they will however ride better. Whatever you deciede you must get the driveshaft shim kit!

The shim kits drops the rear driveshaft hanger bearing down so the two shafts are inline. There is no cv joint between the two halves so the slightest angle will make it vibrate. The kit comes with several different thicknesses of shims and you add or remove until the vibration is gone. Mine came with a recommendation of where to start and it was perfect the first time.
