I need help...complete makeover...

Well, I've been pondering around the ideas in my head of what to do suspension wise with my truck, and after considering putting it on airbags all the way to a rear flip-kit, I've decided to scrap all those ideas and spend money on getting a lift.

The only problem is is that I have no idea about lifted suspension. I'm not even sure where to start looking for a lift for my truck, nor where I can find some tires to fit the 22's that I already have. I'm looking for something big, from 5.5" of lift to 8" at the most, depending on prices and what not. For tires, I'd like to go with a set of 35's or 36's, but, like I said before, I have no idea where to begin.

So, if you guys could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to just go ahead and find everything I need so I know what I'm saving for.

3" procomp spindles for front. then use a Deaver leaf spring pack for the back. then get a 3" body lift for truck. this will alow 35's very easy. get some 4.56 gears or 5.16 and you will be in bussness

Well, keeping the rims makes things easier. I've considered doing this only because I've seen my rims on a lifted Hummer, but I'm not sure if it was 22" or not.
