would need pics of that trucks suspension. no you dont need powerballs for a simple setup. and 8" cylinders will get you all the lift you could possibley get in the front

you dont need power balls for the rear, but its recommended, do it right the first time, that way you dont get into prblms. but you might need to get a brigde put on the rear that way you dont get the bed of the truck all bend up,
