StoneyWV is on a distinguished road

If you have 3.9 gears and 18 inch or taller wheels go with the 4 inch lift. You will be so glad that you did when it's done. The ride will be much more balanced as the front shocks won't be preloaded higher than the rear, and the drive line will be all in the same as stock angles. Stance will be exactly level when you are complete.
If you have 3.55 gears as I do then go the body/shock route first. If nothing else you can use the shocks with the lift afterward on factory settings. Going 35 inch on 3.55 gears is going to kill the engine(in my opinion), and will have you pissed off and wanting to turn the MDS off as it won't hold well on highway at all.
2010 QC ST, 5.7L, 4.10 Gear Swap, 5100 Leveling Shocks at 1.7", K&N Drop-in, Pioneer U310BT, 2/12" DC Level 3/Net Audio Sub Box, JL Components, ARC Audio Amps, Flowmaster American Thunder duals, Granite Alloys sporting 34" Falken Wildpeaks, HID conversion full blackout.
