Make sure you get a set of alignment bolts if you don't already have them. With these trucks, the higher you go, the harder it is to align the front. I'd stay with a 2" front lift.

Yes, the suspension itself is common between the 4WD and 2WD. The only difference is the front hubs. However, being 2WD, you can go with aftermarket drop spindles and get more lift out of your truck because you don't have to worry about front drive line angles.

If you go 3" in the front then you will probably need aftermarket upper control arms to avoid coil bucket contact. The SPC arms are the least expensive good quality ones on the market.

Remember that adding a 3-inch lift on the front can strain the CV joints.
