Daystar vs FatBobs

I am going to lift my truck a little and I was looking to see if anyone had a preference and why. I am just going to go with spacers in the front and I was wondering which to get the Daystar's or the Fatbobs. They both advertise the same lift. Also was wondering if anyone that has used them could tell me how much actual lift they got.

Thanks,

Chad

neither, lift it right the first time. springs are like $150. or bilstein 5100s can give you upto 2.5" lift in front. do the billys if you have the stock 1998 suspension up front.

I've got a 98 5 lug, Bilstein 5100's won't fit. And I haven't been able to find any spring for my application, if you could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Me to. But I am not looking to spend that much money. That's why I was asking about the spacers.
