Spacers would be the easiest to do.

Spacers or a Leveling kit would work I put a leveling kit on my 1500 4x4 and looks GOOD

Do you want to lower the rear or raise the front? If you haul heavy loads or tow raise the front. If you don't it's easier to lower the with drop shackles.

Yeah, drop shackles for the back would be the easiest, quickest, and cheapest.

X 3 on the shackles. It will level out the rear without making it look like a lowrider.
