Cheapest way to lift?

I want to lift my truck so I can fit some 33s under her. Plus, I want it to sit a little higher anyways.

And by cheapest, I don't mean being ghetto and using hockey pucks. And I don't want a lift that is going to screw up my truck in the long run (some body lifts are bad for your truck?). If i can do a BL that isn't going to mess anything up with my truck in the long run, then i'm open to that.


Thanks.

Look into the Bilstein 5100s and an add-a-leaf kit. That will give you a 2.5" Lift. for the full 3" you can add a small topspacer with the 5100s.

Give us a budget on how much you want to spend on just the lift kit not including rims, tires, alignment and labor cost. && how you are going to use your truck daily.

Thanks.
To fit 33's completely you just might need a inch of Body Lift. And Body lifts are not horrible for the vehicle.
Usually you are able to fit 32's with 3 inches of lift.

With that old of vehicle, I would highly recommend staying away from spacers. With that many miles, you really need to replace both the front coil and shock.

What is your exact budget?

I say a solid 3" suspension lift, correct BS wheels and 285's with some trimming will be best.

Rear shocks offer no lift!
Body lifts are not expensive at all.

The ultimate package is going to take a shop between 4-8 hours to perform.
