    you could do a add a leaf in the rear and shackle for 4" or spring over axle for 6" and have little rake. for shocks the stock rears should work i took off the sway bar and mounted them where it bolts to the axle more inwards than stock, and for the front shocks i got f250 shock mounts and longer shocks theyre 32" extended

    oh and the stock driveshafts will work fine

    hmmm, for the rear get warrior shackles and a skyjacker heavy duty AAL---in my opinion it gets you the most lift out of an AAL. for the front you will also need a drop pittman arm and a steering stabilizer is highly recomended. Make sure you get an extention or get a thick bump stop installed on the drivers side. Besides that you already sound like you know what you need!

    I would recommend the shackle/AAL combo.

    With your old leaf springs in the back I don't think you'll net 4" in the back so you can keep that reverse rake you're looking for.

    Also search for homemade shackles on here. You can design your own and make them a little shorter to get the lift a little smaller than you want.
    The AAL kits from Summit and the like come with everything you need.

    Beyond that, ditto to what the other guys said.

    i agree with what he says about the AAL and the shackles to get the right amount of lift. As for the front u can go 4" coils or 2" coils and 2" spacers to get that...

    Early to Mid 80's 2wd F-150 leafs added to your main leaf for 2" lift. ;)

    Can add leafs for more height. Lift packs are the Best way to get lift IMHO.
