was going to get this to lift 3" u guys recommend it

I was going to order this to lift my truck 3"
for the front
http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

and also the spacer above to get me the full 3" but im worried because it says its not recommended for use with spacers is anyone else running this?

and the rear

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

but im confused on the rear is this the only thing i need to lift the rear is the shock or do i need to add something to that as well?

and is this the cheapest place to order this from if this is a good setup?
Thanks

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

When Running a top plate spacer in conjuction with any other lift (or alone for that matter), you WILL wear out the ball joints quickly, and you run the risk of breaking a shock, or other things, if off roading, or hitting larger bumps.

You cant set the rear Bilstiens. Just install the AAL, and the new shocks, and your good. For the front, just move the "C" clip up to the top notch.

and this may be stupid question but is this considered a body lift because i was reading another post and they said this is a body lift and they wouldn't recomend it. Would u recommend something else chris for a really good bang for my buck or is this a good way to lift it. Will it look roughly the same as any other 3" lift kit?

Lifting with the 5100's and an AAL, is an Suspension lift, and about the best "Bang for the Buck". You'll be happy with this lift.

The diff drop, drops the front of the front diff 1", thus dropping the front axels 1/2", as some people have had vibrations in the front, and this is said to correct it. Seems like you got everything needed.

No. It just lowers the front of the front diff 1". No affect on the lift height.
