You will love the bilsteins, and I think those shocks are good for up to a 4" lift...

Im running a 305/55/20 (33") on stock rims and had to use a 1/4 spacer to clear.

How were you planning on adding another inch of two to the front after you install the Bilsteins? (assuming you install the Bilstein's at the 2" setting)

Not sure how to add the other inch or two what do you think the best way to do it would be. Any inch or two suspension spacer or something don't really know to much about this stuff lol. And do you have any pictures of your truck with 305/55/20s?

Well you can't add a spacer on top of the Bilsteins. You could get the Bilsteins and install them now, and if you want to lift it higher later on, you could get a 4" suspension lift and reuse the Bilsteins. That's one way to do it. Or you could do like BLKSVT said, and get a body lift.

What's a good brand to go with for the 4 inch lift and how much does it usually go for? And to keep the truck level with a 4 inch lift in the front what should go in the back a 1 inch block?

BDS makes nice 4" lift for your truck. Here's the link to their kit (Click 4" under 'Step 1'): http://bds-suspension.com/product?ma...3&yr=2006-2008 You might want to talk to BigHorn 4 Life, he gets people good prices on BDS lifts. A 2" rear block would probably sit level.
