    Air Lift #81560 for the front and lift springs or a 2" block for the rear. I installed them in a few of my 3/4 trucks with the 2" block in back. Never had any issues. My crew cab was running 33's with minor trimming of the front fenders.

    The other option is look for lift spindles. Here's a link to another forum. 4" 88-98 Spindles adapted to an '86 C10.

    Big block springs in the front? and blocks out back.
    You can get a couple of inches maybe 1.5.
