such thing as a 1 inch body lift? alternative options?

Ok, I'm putting the 5100's on along with the 2" AAL, but I think I may want just a tad more aggressive stance. Since putting a spacer on top of the billie's set to 2.5 is prob. not a good idea, I was thinking of just doing a 1" body lift. The only problem is, I'm not sure anyone even makes them. If I could do this again, I would have just gone with the 3" OME lift, but I already have the parts sitting in the living room

Any suggestion on what my best options are? Thanks

You can use a 1/4" top plate spacer on top of the Billies and be fine. It will give you the full 3" you are looking for. They are $20 a piece at toytec. I would go that route instead of the body lift. Cheaper and less work.

the top spacer sounds like the way to go. Can someone let me know what length/size #8 bolts I should get, how many? Oh, btw, by doing this, will it kill my ride quality?

thanks, but I checked them both out and toytec is $60 bolts inc. and they offer a TW discount. Wheelers doesn't include the bolts and it's almost same price. Thanks though..

Yes. Usually a 1.5" is enough to level it out with Billies at 2.5". But since you are going the full 3, you should be about perfect.

You could put a 1/2" top plate on one side and a 1/4" on the other.

should I be able to determine if I need to correct for it before I put the lift on, or does this only show up after it's been lifted?

It would show the symptoms unlifted.
