No, most of the time the suspension lift kits include a leveling of their own. When i bought one for my old truck it was a 6inch lift. 6 in the front and 4 in the back.

Yes you can run your leveling kit under your springs in front. You will need a new set of blocks for the rear. Don't stack them. Or a set of shackles for the rear to give you the same add'l lift.
