you can get spacers that sit under your factory coil springs on ebay for like 30 bucks, they're cool for leveling out a sagging front end. That's the cheapest way that I know of

cheapest or easiest?

front end - spindles
back - lift blocks

That is how I have my truck, and it was very easy

Nope. Literally just replace your stock spindles with lift spindles

You need new shocks also whats the point in putting stock shocks on when they will only max out to the stock length?

No you need new shock to match the amount of lift that you put on your truck, you may have to extend the brake lines or take them off the frame and rebend the tubing to stretch.
