Typically kits are the best way to go. There are other options though that I have been researching.
You may want to talk to Cary from CTperformance, He is pretty knowledgeable about suspensions for our trucks while maintaining a good ride. He is a sponsor here. If you do not want to stiffen your ride, do not go with a lift kit.
You will probably want to look into a hanger kit or mini spring packs. Whatever you do, please do not double stack the rear blocks and do not ever put blocks in the front.
I personally would never go with a rear block higher than the tallest factory block. I am not sure what the talles is though. 3-4". 4" to me is borderline. I would also stick to a factory blocks or something like the OUO or PMF blocks, not the typical ones the likt kits usually come with.
$1000 budget for a full lift kit may be pushing it, especially if you want all new springs; thats the most expensive part of the system usually.
