Depends on the lift you want. New springs with a bigger arc will give you more gain than shackles Mine were 200mm and only gave about 50mm lift. Geeves I believe knows where to go in Wellington

most suspension places can get replacement springs. Repco used to have a good deal but dont know now. Try Autolign or hutt city auto parts or bnt
Sanding your knuckles before starting work can help. That way you cant skin them

creates a whole lotta issues with keeping it road legal. You also run into issues with pinion angles and driveshaft length. If you sort that to gain the same lift at the front you would be talking major modification probably an sas. Landys already have leaf springs all round and are mechanically fairly forgiving

Yep Autolign in Petone would be a good place, they are part of BNT but focus on suspension.
I think G Guy motors in Thorndon are local 4wd experts.
Could also try Archers springs in Rotorua or Bellamys in Chch for a new set of raised leafs.
Don't forget you will quite possibly need new longer shocks as well
