next time OP, make a title that's more descriptive to your situation-
"Do I need a diff drop w/ a 3" lift?"
or
"Is a diff drop needed with this lift?"
would be more appropriate

The only threads titled "help" should be for OP's in bad/ emergency-ish situations, like being stuck on a trail with nobody around

If you are short on money, then skip the lift, especially since you're doing a 3in spacer. You're going to end up doing more harm than good. Save up $200 and get the Bilstein 5100 replacement struts (front only). You'll get 3in of reliable lift. There was a thread here where another member ran a 3in spacer and it eventually snapped his OEM strut.

You can still throw block in the rear to level it out, but upgrade that to an AAL eventually.

Another vote for no spacers, and going with 5100's instead.

Spacers will just cause you more pain, and cost you more money in repairs down the road.

$200 for 5100's and another $80 for an AAL and you're set.
