You can get the 2" medium or heavy OME leaf springs and then fine tune them with your shackles, or remove the shackles and just run the stock ones with the leaf springs. The med springs tend to give 2.5" and sometimes 3" of lift. The heavy springs, which i have, net around 2" or 2.5".

so med 2" gives 2.5"?

I dont think I would mind gettin the med 2.5" and getting 3" on back.. I can always get some more up front with some lower spacers.

Also take into account if you are going to be carrying heavy loads you are going to want a little room for sag as a result of those loads.
