I bought my '96 already lifted, it looks to be about 3". How do I determine the amount of lift? What's the difference between a lift kit and a leveling kit? I can see some coil spacers in the front, and it has blocks in the back, the truck sits a little higher in the rear. I need to order new shocks, but I have to assume that stock sized ones won't work. The front shocks would be hard to measure for length, but the back ones would be easy, are the front and back the same length?
Edit: I am looking at Rancho RS5000, Pro Comp ES3000, Rough Country nitro 9000, Skyjacker Hydro 7000. I'm leaning towards the Rancho's, any experiences, good, bad or otherwise with any of these makes and models of shocks? Anything I need to consider besides price? Any suggestions for other makes/models? I'm trying to stay around 200 or less for all 4. (less is better
