Default Lift Help.

I have a 93 Z71 and want to do a small 2-3" lift as I drive this truck daily and use it to tow my car. I have been searching around at options but I was wondering if anyone has done something similar. I don't want a body lift looking for strictly suspension. Just hoping someone can point me in the right direction as far as add a leaf or straight up leaf swap. Or even if there is something OEM I can pull out of the bone yard. Also a good shock to use. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I do believe no one makes a kit for under a 4" but you can crank the torsion bars and get at least 2" those trucks u can actually crank all the way to the bump stops I wouldn't do that tho I always figured 2-3 ribs on your CV joints touching and you'll be ok.....get an alignment afterwards

crank your bars, put in 3/4 or 1 ton bars and crank less than the 1/2 tons, body lift, rcx makes a torsion bar lift kit but its a waste of money. id go a 4" if you wanted to keep ifs otherwise do an SAS.

body lifts i wouldnt recomment, your bed wont have as much weight capacity.

as for the rear you can use blocks, add a leaf, 1 tons and 3/4 ton rear like 5-7 pack leafs ive seen help a little. if you want it to not squat while towing then some helper springs would work, bags probably wouldnt be worht it since it doesnt tow everyday.
