Best and cheapest are 2 totally different things, and should not be confused with each other ;-)

The rear you could just fit some longer shackles, or reset the springs [cheap] and the front you could fit lifted spindles, [dear] wind up the torsion bars [cheap] and take a hammer to the offending parts of the front fenders to fit bigger tyres as well, the more height from the centre of axle to ground is much better than lift above that point.

i think longer shackles are illegal here qld.
what does it cost to reset springs. wouldnt it be simpler to just stick em above the axels?

not sure how far you can wind up tortion bars with out handlin problems

i think in qld can only go 15 mm above 205 .16 so not a great deal there but i suppose every mm helps

Fred,
I fitted higher profile tyres to my Rodeo. 215/85R16. This gave me nearly an extra inch of ground clearance. I travel on some pretty hairy tracks to get to fishing spots and rarely bottom out. The down side is the speedo is slightly out but not by much. This size tyre isn't common but it's made by a couple of brands and is supplied by most of the big tyre suppliers.
Regards
Steve.
