Something else to consider is giving your current suspension an overhaul. The suspensions bind up over time and not work properly. Pull the suspension, take it apart and check for bent, cracked, and badly worn parts. Fix or replace the really bad stuff and any worn out bushings. Grease all the cross shafts and bearing points with good low temp grease and put it back together, you will probably be pleasantly surprised. Not too mention it's primarily a labour investment and not much cash.
