Do yourself a big favor and make sure that your tcase isnt equiped with a slip style front yoke. We dropped the d@mn shaft like every 8 meters with my cousins sfa C/K1500. Parts list for his was:

ford shock towers: $50 from dealership
2 18" travel doestch shocks: $68
Superlift 12" lift brake lines: $89 new at Carlisle
56" chevy springs 4" lift: $200 from ebay
Energy suspension bushings: $29 autozone
Crossover steering setup complete: $650 partsmike
AGR steering box: $300 local swap meet
Suspension tabs: less than $75 ruffstuff
Custom front shaft: $350 AZ drivelines
Home built SFA frame from 2"x .250" box: 2 12pks of Black and Tan and 16" pizza

I would say his was done on the reasonable, but def safe. I didnt let him skimp on the brakes or steering. Took about 3 months to get it all together. The only thing that happened later was him trading his tcase to junk yard for fixed yoke style.

his most likely isn't. what year is your cousins?
ford shock towers: $50 from dealership
2 18" travel doestch shocks: $68
Superlift 12" lift brake lines: $89 new at Carlisle
Local line shops can make them custom for under $30.
56" chevy springs 4" lift: $200 from ebay
52's will give a better ride and be more flexy. also look for either stock ones or 2" lift.
Energy suspension bushings: $29 autozone
Crossover steering setup complete: $650 partsmike
AGR steering box: $300 local swap meet
Stock steering box is fine to use.
Suspension tabs: less than $75 ruffstuff
Custom front shaft: $350 AZ drivelines
Home built SFA frame from 2"x .250" box: 2 12pks of Black and Tan and 16" pizza

I have 4in atlas springs in mine plus the ORU SAS kit and run 37x12.50x17's.
I did some trimming on the front bumper and the back of the fender.

before you order springs look at it like this. a 52" swap will net you 4" with just springs. now make a crossmember out of 2x2 .250" wall and weld it to the bottom of your frame up front. another 2" of lift, and use rear shackles to to get it level. no lift spring is going to give you a "good ride", they are stiff and arched. do yourself a favor and look up 52" swap before you go lift springs.
