Im not sure if this will work of a "budget" lift but let me know of any other options.

This is a daily driver that sees no offroad time.

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

It will ride like crap and likely break. Your front suspension will be overextended and you will destroy your balljoints.

Are you trying to compensate for something?? Why lift it if you aren't going to do any off roading. It's your $$ to waste though

Theres times to be on a budget, But you never skip on your suspention, If you want a lift cheap go with a 3" spacer lift.

you're looking to lift the rear much more than the front...

unless you want the truck to sit like a dragster...

when lifting, if you want the truck to sit level, think 1.5 to 1 on a 1st gen...

if you lift the front 3", you want to do the rear at 1.5" to 1.75"

lifting the rear 3" would work if you lifting the front 5"

wouldnt it be lifting the front about 4.25 (3" spacer and 1.25" setting on the bilstein 5100s) and the rear 3" aal from skyjacker #RTC20

being that your truck is 4x4, if you lift more than 2.5'' your going to run into CV problems real quick. if you want 6'' you need a drop down bracket, but thats much more than $1000. other than that you'd have to get into a body lift, which is super phag.
there is no budget 6'' lift.
