I suppose it would depend on what your trying to accomplish.

If your just looking to clear bigger tires than a Body Lift would be good.

If you looking for flex and the maximum travel out of your suspension then go with a suspension lift. Although this will be expensive!

I would go with a 4 in. suspension lift. It's more than a body lift, but worth it.

alrighty, you have the most options out there.
Front:
3" spindle
3" coil w/UCAs

Rear:
AAL (add a leaf) (about 1.5")
Shackle (1.5-2")
Block (2")

All around:
3" Body lift

You can do these altogether as well as by themselves.

I know what the body lift costs, but what about the other options you gave, what do they normally run?
