Pick up a Classic trucks, Sport trucks or Truckin magazine...companies like Aim & Stillen have kits at anywhere from $300-$700...i don't think they top a grand unless you wanna go full air...i believe you can go with a 4-6 drop...4inch in front,6inch out back...coils all around is very easy...i'd go with 2in lowering coils w/2in dropped spindles up front...& 3in lowering springs w/ 3in lowering blocks...Good luck ...Kimo
