Suspension I found on the internet a 3 inch leveling kit which is a spring pack for 100 bucks. I also have air bags on the rear so I can raise the rear quite abit to level the rear out

33s will clear without a lift, depending on wheel width, 35s will need a 4" lift. Personally, a 315 on anything less than a 10 inch wheel is asking to ride on the center of the tread.

Either go all in on a complete lift or leave the entire idea alone. I could have had a bad a$$ lift on my truck with the money I spent 'doing it my way'.

I've seen 35s on the stock wheels done before on both leaf and coiled trucks. However, you're not going to get too much air in them before they start riding on the center tread. 8 inch wheel, 12.5" tire, these things happen.

I suggest that after you mount them, run some chalk across the tread and check for how it wears off. When there is still chalk on the outsides, reduce air pressure and repeat until it all scrubs off. Don't be surprised if you're running 40 psi when you're done, that's what I run my 315s at on a 10 inch wheel.

REMEMBER the inflation on the tire says MAX PSI, not daily driver PSI.
