Yup crank the torsion bars and get some shackles or aal's for the rear. Next step would be spindle lift for 3" or body lift for 3".

You can get from 1/2" to 3" depending on how much you turn it and how warn out they are. Most likely you will get about 1.5" - 2".

Probably a lot more then its worth. You can do it yourself really easily and then just get an alignment after.
