small lift

ive been wanting to lift my truck a little to stop the minor rubbing that i have, i also need to replace basiclly the whole rear suspension because of rust, but i dont have a lot of money. what do you think about a t bar crank in the front and shackles in the rear. that should be good for 2 in right?

should be...but with the crank you should sit level and not need shackles...depending on how bad of a sag you have

I maxed out my t-bars and added Add-A-Leafs and my truck sits at least 2 inches higher all around. That's what I suggest.

i have to replace the shackles and perches anyway so i figured i would just get some chevy drop shackles. does replacing the rear shackles and perches and possibly springs require anything more than basic hand tools? i want to put an 8.8 in too so i might do it all at once.
