Lift Question!

I looking for a 3 in. lift and want to know the cheapest route. Its not really for any hardcore offroading but more for looks. I saw this lift kit on ebay which i believe is made by spring tech. Just copy and past the link below. If any other suggestions please let me know. Thanks!

David

Re: Lift Question!

I wanted a lift as well and decided to go with the Ready Lift leveling kit. It is a spacer that goes on top of the front struts and does not require any compression of the spring to install. It brings the front of the rig up almost
2.5" and gives the truck a much beefier look. I also installed BFG AT KO tires in a 265 size. This way I really did not affect my gas mileage or ride. This will give you more clearance as well as the look you are after. Check out - ReadyLIFT.com. or pm me for more info.

Re: Lift Question!

The lift you are looking at is a front spacer that requires the front springs to be compressesd. The rear springs are probably not worth anything, do a google search on spring tech and see what you come up with.

x2!! The last thing you want to be skimping on is your suspension, whether you're an off-roader or not.

Re: Lift Question!

Alright I hear alot about ToyTec lifts so I checked out the website. I was looking at the 3 in. lift with:

3" Front Lift Spacers-CNC Machined From T-6 6061 Aluminum,
6 longer top plate spacer studs,
2" Rear Lift "Medium load" coil springs (OME 895)

Does anybody have this setup? Please feel free to give info good or bad. Thanks!
