Yes, this would work but the rear is already like that so you need to do something in the rear.
We have a kit that does front and rear here:

The front is weld-on (because of the perches), the rear is bolt on and a lot of designing went into this kit to get the proper geometry for the suspension still.
As for shocks, the Pro-Comp ES9000 shocks are a good deal and fairly cheap for a gas charged shock:

They are only $8 more for a set of 4 than the ES3000's which are hydraulic.
With the SOA kit, to do it right it going to cost more than a lift kit. You can use a drop pitman arm but the drag link will hit the passenger side leaf spring under full droop which could damage or bend your steering components. To do it right would require a hi-steer or a crossover steering which we carry here:

You would also need shocks and extended brake lines.
Hope this helps.
