Re: What lift for this setup/demand
I haven't experienced all the suspensions setups out there, but from what I've read, at the $1,000 price range aside from a stock suspension set up, the only thing you'll find that will be comparable to the stock feel is a spacer lift. A spacer lift is just your stock suspension with some "spacers" at the top to help lift the vehicle (kind of self explanatory). Since you're keeping the stock suspension it will feel about the same. But the downfall to a spacer lift is the fact that you're keeping your stock suspension. Not to say the stock suspension is bad, it's just nowhere near as good as pretty much all the aftermarket stuff.
