Lift opsions

ok so im lookin to do a 3 in pa body lift and maybe a 5.5 suspension lift but my question is what companies should i look into for thr suspension lift.
I want to try to get some 35's.
YES i will re-gear it with 4.10's dose that sound good.

Easier to comment also if you say what year truck, thanks.

I prefer suspension lifts, but body lifts are usually way, way cheaper to do if you just want to clear some bigger tires.

I have 35's and I run 4.56 gears also. Seems like a good ratio for that especially with my smaller 3.0.

well for front suspension im gunna do 3 inch spindle and 3 inch torsion crank. therefore i wanted to kno if the s10 leafs would lift it up to 6 to match the front. im trying to do this on a tight budget so for right now the whole kit is out of the list. if i have to ill buy 4 inch blocks aal's and shackles for the rear.

Your out of luck , Ive never heard of using S10 leafs only half ton silverado leafs and they wouldnt come close to six inches of lift , And your only two options for suspension is RCD and Superlift both would not be budget lifts ... If your 4wd

You cant use a spindle lift on a 4x4 torsion bar ranger.
