96 4x4 leveling

i have thought about this a while now and since i am going to be doing all the work in replacing the u joints in my front axles and my auto hubs to manuel hubs. i am going to go a head and level the front with the back. i have seen a couple things on hear where they say you can do it for around $250. If that is true where can i get the coils, shocks, and camber spacers for that price. I was about to order it all from summit but it was about 350 not 250 for skyjacker coils, shocks and alignment parts not including the price for man hubs and conversion kit.. please if you no where i can get it cheaper please let me no. One last thing i am going to need some tires anyone have any for a good price or no somewhere i can get some cheap. thanks for all the help

well i dont no if the shocks have ever been changed, they are not bad but i dont want them to be stretched completely out. I am going to get warn hubs from somewhere else i could not find them at summit.
So i only need to get the coils and maybe a alignment, not shocks and the adjustment cams???

I ran skyjacker leveling coils on my 93 ranger for years when I had it, definitely need alignment, the fully adjustable cams will be nice incase you ever go with a bigger lift or back to stock. I never got new shocks but if yours are shot it wouldn't hurt to get a set. Most shocks are good with 0-2" lift, but you should consider the lift when looking for new ones.

I got a used set of skyjackers coils for around 70 bucks back then and got the cams at napa. With that and an alignment it was probably under 150 bucks total.

I swapped my auto hubs for warn manuals too, wise choice.

i got the mile marker hubs, they were alot cheaper, i have not complaints with there performance except the powder coating on the side broke up off and caused my wheels to get loose so i had to take them to a machine shop to get it milled off on a lath
