Looking to lift my first truck

Hello everyone,
Been lurking these boards for a few weeks now and thought it was time to make an account.
I just got myself a 2002 TB LT and have some plans for it, but need a little assistance clearing up a few things before I get started changing up the suspension.
Guess I'll start with my end goal.
I want a 3" lift running 16x8 wheels with some 32.8" tires.
I know I'll probably need trim or remove the front bumper and liners and run at least 2" wheel spacers to make that wheel and tire combo fit.
All the brake rotors, calipers, pads, linkages, bushings, bearings, and joints are getting replaced and I want to install all lift components while my mechanic is in there.

Sadly, I can't find any complete lift kits with lift spacers, shocks/struts, and springs for the TB :sadcry:
From what I've gathered it's a wise idea to run Billstein 4600 or 5100 shocks in the rear but haven't found any recommendations on ideal springs or front struts for a 3" lift.
Which springs should I get and what front struts should I be running?

Thanks!
