Default Leveling Kit for my 2WD

Hi guys,

I've been asking around for opinions on a leveling kit for my truck which is 2WD. I know there is a whole different process to level a 2WD than to level a 4WD. Seems like a 2WD leveling kit consists of either coils, shocks, blocks, or new spindles. I see some guys put a 3" leveling kit and extra blocks in the rear to sit higher than a 4WD truck. I kind of want to go that route...sit higher up but not too high. What is the best route to take - add 3" spindles and blocks, or just replace the shocks and add bigger coils?

Do not not not not put coil spacers on it. Been there. It rides like *** and tears the front end up faster. Get a spindle lift. You will get 4x4 height (stock height - will not be higher than a leveled 4x4) and your ride quality will stay the same and the suspension will work as its intended to.

Cheapest way to level 2wd is lowering shackles on the back.

Yup, but everyone here seems to think up is the only way to do anything.
