Need Advice On Lift

I have a 79 Chevy k30 LWB. I am looking for a heavy duty 4 to 6 inch lift. It has a dana 60 up front and a 14FF in the back. It is also full-time 4x4(np203) with a 400 SB bored out 40 Thousanths.

If you are looking to retain load capacity, i'd get a shackle flip for the rear and keep the stock 1 ton springs. You can get either a 4" shackle flip or a 6" to match whatever you do in the front.
