I second the conversion. You should be able to get a set of rear 450/500 shocks at a salvage yard near you for a fair price. Even ebay maybe.

Depends on how much of a lift kit. The shock conversion won't max the suspention out as much as the lift kit. Max the suspention out and your ball joints won't last long.

Been there done that.
