3" LIFT ADVICE FOR 2WD DC

Hello, I was wondering if anyone feels a lift kit only creates problems to the stock shocks, suspension in general. I really like the look of a 3" kit. I am also wondering If with a 2WD new shocks are still suggested and is a diff drop kit needed on a 2wd? I'm new to all this, thanks.

With a 3 inch lift you'll need new shocks. You can lift with Bilstein 5100s in the front with either an add a leaf or a block for the rear. I suggest you talk to

http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/ or http://downsouthmotorsports.com/

As far as the diff drop it's for the front diff on a 4x4 truck.

Add http://toyteclifts.com/ in there too.

We are assuming you have a prerunner, right? Not a 5 lug?

I'd check out spindles. You can get 4" of lift and retain your stock front end suspension geometry (read, no need for new shocks, coils or UCA's). You'll probably need extended brake lines though.

This is what I was getting to. Wanted to make sure you had a 6 lug.
