    DR coilovers AAl 285 kelly safaris lightbar/skidplate need more!
    don't get a block in the back it makes the ride suck more than stock, add a leaf helps imo. If you dont mind spending a grand get some coilovers in the front then you can adjust the height to whatever suits your liking the best.

    I'm guessing he thought you were being a dick by telling him to search... which is understandable. I mean, why look through hundreds of threads of the exact same topic when you can just start your own?

    For what its worth, i just did the Billy lift and AAL in the back this past weekend. I noticed right away i dont feel the little rumbles from uneven pavement as much.




    10 people were giving him plenty of advice. why do you feel the need to chime in with nothing but "SEARCH" ? in fact, why did you even enter this thread if youre not goign to help.

    seems to me its just as much effort typing out

    "do a search or read the faq"
    vs
    "5100s and a AAL is your best bet".

    just annoying seeing the same thing over an over..i spent hours and hours reading stickies and threads to make decisions ...it doesnt get more played out then "3in lift"....not ment to be a dick in any way but its all opinions so read the hundreds of threads that there already are and then make a decision off that...

    OP-do some reading and feel free to pm me with direct question about certain parts or specific setups that interest you...

    for what it's worth OP, spacer lifts up front and blocks in the back give harsher rides. The more money you spend, the better the ride.

    yeah but no matter how many times you, me the mods, ect ect say "do a search" someone will join up next week and post the same thing. its been that way since forums were invented and will be that way forever.

    how does that saying go ...whats the definition of insanity? doing the same thing over and over again yet expecting a different result. so basically you must be insane if you think anything will change lol


    but yea OP...... do a search on recent posts by me and you'll see my write up on the exact install you might be planning on doing. i dont know if youre doing the work yourself or if youre going to take it some where, but either way....give it a read. :)
