Lift kits not a good idea, unless you get the upper control arms done. The OEM control ball-joint angle is already just about maxed out at stock height.

Here`s a link that tells you why you need the change the upper control arms.
When you open the link, go to the description tab within the site and click it.

When doing the rear, unbolt the lower shock mounts and the sway bar links. Then jack up the frame the get the springs unseated and slip in the pucks. I would recomend longer shocks though. Fox 2.0 is a good choice.
