do you have a 2 wheel drive... if so you could do lift spindles along with rear shackles but that would put you up about 3" and your truck would sit about level.

get 2 inch lift coils (with those you will need new shocks), and it would sit a little higher in the front. i haven't heard of any way to get 1 out of the rear.

with the lift coils (usually 2.5-3") you will also need new UCAs. Cheaper better way would be spindles. There are good and bad reviews on both spindle manufacturers, but they are both fine. I ran the doestch as they were cheaper with no problems. For 1" in the rear you can run a 1" block, or you can get a 1.5" AAL or a lift shackle is adjustable 1-2" IIRC.
