Here is a list from Manwithoutaplan on why the 6 inch lift is crap. Here it goes

Con's
1. If you are 4x4 you have to cut a cross member to fit the drive shaft.
2. You do not gain any travel from stock.
3. You diff hang lower than the front member.
4. The Pro comp shocks are stiff as hell including the block.
5. You get shit constantly for having db lift.

Pro's
1 cv joints are level if you are 4x4
2. Spindle is stronger than Stock.
3. With 35's you have to do some form of triming

6" lifts are typically for looks. If you offroad and want a stable feeling (not too top heavy) when flexing or on a off cambered turn, 3" lift is where it is at.

High center of gravity
Gains of ground clearance are minimal

Looks tits though.. GL in your search.

Im working on saving the cash but im going with the OME 2/12 inch lift kit with nitrogen charged shocks and then ill add the 3/8 spacer and get a little bit more and new upper control arms so total will probably be around 1900$ Canadian. From what i have read about its a really good lift.
