I'd do the bodylift first.
As for the suspension lift, I'd be interested in getting a list of all the parts needed as well..... so someone chime in!!

Superlift is about the only way to go. Or you could try to find an RCD lift, but they are discontinued.

how much do superlifts run about? what comes in the lift? would it be possible to just buy longer shocks to gain a lift?

And no you cannot buy longer shocks for lift.

And do them both at the same time.

Superlifts run I think about 1700 or so, someone correct me if I'm wrong. As for what comes with it,
For the front its front diff drop brackets, torsion bar drop brackets, lower control arm cross member, and larger steering knuckles. The rear is blocks or add a leads depends on what you want. And the 4 new shocks. And no you can not just add longer shocks to gain lift.
