I used Fabtech's spindle lift w/ the AAL, but that wasn't enough lift in the rear. I'd do the spindle in the front w. Chevy springs in the rear.

Cranking the torsion bars doesn't change the stiffness of the suspension. It just changes how much further the tire can travel downwards. I have the 3.5 fabtech with the torsion bars about 1/4" between the head of the bolt to the torsion key cover and it rides fine for me. For the rear you can get AAL and Chevy shackles and that'll level it out.

I like the feel of cranked torsion bars. The more rugged the better, at least in a truck. I wouldn't mind long travel either though.
