You need to use the bushings or you will only end up with a 1" lift because the stock bushing is about 1" thick. Body mount kits and body bushings are the same.

Yes and no. some of the kits from Prothane and Daystar are body lift and body mounting bushing all in one.
I would either;
Read the information about the kit you want to buy( daystar and prothane have one piece kits that come with new mounting hardware).
or if you already have one then simply measure the lift block.
