Best leveling kit option?

I want to level the front of my truck to run bigger tires being as money is kinda on a budget otherwise i'd get a 4inch lift but this is the next best option.

Option 1:
Am I better off getting this kit which includes front leaf springs, track bar, u-bolts, shocks etc for $450.
I'd bump up the options for the better shocks and get the dual steering stabilizer all for $600.

Option 2:

Total: $570

I want to run LT315/75/R16 Nitto Trail Grapplers (35" dia)

Can I run that on stock height now or will I need the leveling kit. As with the rough country kit the suggested size is 305 but Nitto doesn't make that size and the 315's offer the highest specs. When I look online I hear mixed stories of them fitting, fitting with rubbing or not fitting at all.

If someone could please help that would be great and suggest me more products that would make the cost cheaper and better.
