Lift look??

I have been thinking about getting a 3 inch lift for a few months now and with these new wheels and tires I am really wanting one! I know nothing about lifts! Will a 3 inch lift look good with my truck? What type/brand should I get and how much will it cost?

Ok, well I'll try my best explaining this. Ok, on a truck with no lift, the front end sits about 1-2" lower than the rear end due to more weight up front, like the engine and front axle. So if you wanted your truck to sit level, you would lift the front end about 1-2". See i've got a 2.5" lift up front so now mine sits higher in the front than the rear by about an inch. So i need to get some 1" AAL's so it'll be level all around. I hope that explain some of it. Holler at me if you got any questions beacuse I was in your spot a year or so ago.

One other word of advice, stay away from blocks. if you use those, they can kill your leaf springs and increase axle wrap.

I don't think you use spacers on the back...but I could be wrong. Spacers preload your front coils (springs) to give the truck more lift. On the back, some use blocks to give an easy lift but it is not recommended (as indicated above).

I'm not real familiar with the 1st Gen so..... You will def need the springs and AAL the shocks...well you may be able to get by with the stockers but I would upgrade them too while you are at it.
