posi would help..
they make shock brackets that put the shocks straight up and down..
helps alot.. a simple air bag inside the pass side coil to preload the rear helps.. with hooking up.. but not ride on the street..
pinion angle.. trucks that are lowered.. change this.. and i needs to be fixed.. (they make shims)
getting a full width track bar to replace the half lenth stocker..

I'd start with a posi.. then look into the other stuff..
