for the levelling kit, it depends on how much you want to spend, I put in a 2.5inch hellbent steel levelling kit, it was only $80 and works great, and you can easily do it yourself, and once you get it on just get an alignment.

Or if you want to spend a few more bucks you could get bilstein height adjustable shocks, they will run you a couple hundred (if you can find em in stock) and then you can either do em yourself by buying/renting/borrowing a shock compressor or have a shop do it.

Ive heard that you can just take out your strut into like canadian tire and they have a shock compressor and for $80 or something they have put the new shock into the strut, and give it back to you, but that im not to sure of,
well my problem is i only have a 2wd and most everything i find to lift or level the truck is for 4x4 models only.i have found some on ebay for like 50-80 bucks for a 2wd but not sure on quality.i still want it to ride smoothly.yea im thinking of saving up for the rims and tires and getting those and then the CAI and cover. so assuming all goes well i should have it all by januaryish.lol. the wheels are gna be my christmas present.another problem is i know exactgly wich rims and tires im getting but not sure on offset or any of that other info.im assuming itl all fit since the measurements i do know are the same as the other member on here that already did it.rims just say low offset nothing specific thou.

Ahh yeah your right i forgot you were 2 wheel drive. i dont know if id trust ebay, but it might be okay. because honestly all it is is just a slab of metal with some nuts and bolts haha its nothing mechanical or anything. so i dont see how much of a difference it would make.

haha thats going to be an expensive gift man! 26s probably cost a ridiculous amount for the tires and wheels eh??? if their close to 35x12.5 (I dont know the exact measurements) but then you should be okay with around a 0 offset, or slightly negative, like -10, but i wouldnt go any more then that or else you will rubb on the fender
