What will you be doing with the truck? Will it be a dd or a toy?
How are you at measuring? Are you a "that's close enough for gov't work" kinda guy or are you precise like a Asian doing math? If you're a "close enough" kinda guy go leafs. They're simple and cheap. If you're anal about your measurements then research radius arm suspensions, 3 link and 4 links. Coils will be way smoother riding and flex well Leafs will be kinda stiff and won't flex as well unless you learn how to adjust the leaf packs.
87 extra cab-short bed, SAS D44/9", 5.0 lots of others but that's the basic stuff.
