Since your truck is a 94 you have a TTB front end and could get with either coil spacers, or 2" lift coils to help level the truck out. It would also require cam bushing and alignment.

Check out the leveling springs from skyjacker and as far as shocks go your options are limit less, but I would definitely go with a gas pressurized shock absorber. They improve ride control by eliminating acceleration squat, minimizes braking nose dive and controls roll and pitch.

You should ask for the pair of Fabtech 2" leveling springs that I have. PM me, I'll cut you a good deal!

I have the skyjackers for 2-3in lift in the front with coil spacers and I love them. Everyone I talked to said they was really stiff and not to get them but I'm glad I did. Its stiffer then factory but I like a firm feel.
