Getting a lift soon...

Hey everybody,
I went to my local 4wdparts store and they said with installation, a leveling kit would be 500, 4" bl would be 1000, and 5" suspension lift would be around 1500. Its a 1995 2wd xlt manual 3.0 v6. Are those reasonable prices?
They seemed like I would be able to negotiate with them a little bit, so maybe a leveling kit and bl together for less? I wont try to fool myself by thinking ill ever get off the pavement, as I work 12 hours a day 7 days a week now, so its more just because I want to sit higher,hence the bl and not sus lift.
If anybody has any ideas or any advice feel free to give me a heads up.
Ill try to get a pic or 2 up soon, but the computer at work sucks
thanks in advance
-Dan

3 in Summit BLs cost $250. They aren't hard to install.

A leveling kit like coil spring spacers up front only costs like $50-$100 for the spacers. Then install and alignment.

4 inch suspension lift seems about right.
