The cheapest lift is to pick up a pair of Trooper springs from a bone yard and swap them into the Rodeo. OEM Trooper springs are a direct replacement for the OEM Rodeo springs and will give you a stiffer ride and about 1.5" of lift. You might also check the classified section for OEM Trooper springs from Trooper owners who have upgraded their springs.

Stock shocks are fine, you aren't adding much lift. You are looking for 2nd gen Trooper coil springs 1992 and later but I wouldn't want to go back too far and end up with a worn pair.

Cheapest without giving up too much comfort are Skyjacker's (IMO)

These are rear: http://www.skyjacker.com/product.php?ProdID=15793

These are front: http://www.skyjacker.com/product.php?ProdID=15663

I added 2" of lift with OME 919's and I put these on, great ride quality for the price. You can usually find them on eBay for cheaper and on Amazon with free shipping.
