Those are the drop down brackets for your ibeams. They fix the camber by dropping the inside of the said beams, so your tires don't look like this \---/ when you put lift springs in. I think they will work, but do some quick measuring (see how wide the ends of your beams are, and if they fit properly in the brackets) just to be sure.

The 4wd axle brackets will not work. I think the radius arm brackets will. The coil springs, shocks, blocks, add-a-leaf, will work. But I'd get new u-bolts, they stretch after the are torqued down. So you almost have a complete lift kit, all you need is to find some 2wd lift brackets and you are set.
