Lifting a 2wd

I want to lift my 2WD c5500

main objectives:
* 24.5s hit the Steering Arm bolt, lifting to clear this bolt.
* to level the wheel gaps

Do you think a 6" lift will require:

* Custom Steering Arm?

* Extended Brake Lines?

* Taller Shocks (open to recomendations or extension brackets)


Thank you all for the knowledge and advise!

That's on my rig with +/- 12" of lift.
Steers fine. No issues.

I did the same on mine, and ext brake lines, swayer end links, made shock mounts and few other things I'm sure I'm missing.
