ur questions seemed to have been answered but i'll add my .02

--215/60/15 is the tires size, PERFECT TIRE SIZE.
--Get all your suspension from summit

since you have an xcab you can SHOULD get a new carrier bearing xmember since your stock one hangs down below the frame. With a 5/6 every inch counts, trust me.

Since you have an xcab you'll want angled blocks, you'll want a coil spacer for the driver side coil as well.

Lastly for parts, you'll need/want a bolt in c-notch and that means you'd have to move your charc. canister. Some trucks don't NEED a notch with 6" mine hit now and again but it was annoying so I just did it.

Now as far as the install, the driver side leaf spring bolt is a wicked PITA. It hits the gastank coming out. Soo you can a) cut it off or b) cross you fingers and hope you can get it out without moving ur gas tank. I vote for option (a). Make sure to put the bolt in backwards when you install the new leafs so you can get to it easy next time.

You'll also want to notch your dustshield because it will squeek against the lower control arm. The squeeking is loud and horrible, lol, so just go on and notch it a tad for it. An easy way to get the spacer to stay on the driver side coil is to tape it on the top. The leaf springs CAN GO IN BACKWARDS so you'll want to measure from the pin to the ends and put them in properly, or else you'll have to reinstall them.

Lasty and well firstly, measure measure measure. Measure your truck before the drop and after the drop, some people don't install the coils right and don't get the proper drop. Also, measure the pinion angles before and after the drop to ensure it's still ok. Last thing you want is a vibration that causes a u-joint to xplode in xx thousand miles.

That's all I can think of right now, PM me with any question man.
