If Bilstein made the adjustable leveling shocks for your model, that would be the way to go. With them you could set them to either 0" of lift or 2" of lift.
I am going to have to check on the Bilstein Shocks because I just went to see a guy at Country Tire here that does this stuff every day and he said it is $350 for the Daystar and he would need my truck all day. I think that is way to high and if I were going to go that route then I would likely do it myself. Just trying to be lazy I guess. I think the shocks or air shocks may be the way to go. Might just leave it alone and save for my rims instead.

I have been thinking about doing this for awhile. Where can I get the leveling kit? Are they hard to install?

depending on backspacing you will have to trim for 35's with just a leveling kit!
