Coil spacer and shackle lift would be the cheapest. Can be found on eBay for around $80 in a kit.

the coil spacer and shackle lift will probably require the following:
longer shocks, possible relocation of bump stops, and alignment.
and it will change the ride and handling.

body lift will maintain the factory ride and handling. nothing else needed.

coils and shackles will most likely end up costing you more in the additional parts, time, and adjustments than the body lift.
