lift kits

what is the best type of lift kit to put on truck? I have found lift kits that are for springs, for the body, steering knuckle lifts and others, which one is the safest and "truest" lift. I will be adding larger tires shortly after i put in a lift, if i decide to go through with it.
thanks again...

None are safe first off because they change the vehicle design that cost piles of cash to come up with.They all have tradeoffs also,usually some part of the truck wears out much faster,u-joints,pitman arms transfer case problems,pinion bearings come to mind quickly.Depending on the lift brake hoses,shocks,steering shaft etc will also need replaced.Tire size will dictate the amount of lift you need.If you have any warranty on the truck through the manufacturer it will be null and void.

Whatever you do Never Never put blocks between the front axle and leaf springs.Buy some mags like 4 wheel and off road.your choice body or suspension.But like said it can be dangorous and you might even break some height laws.
