    Hello, I was wondering if anyone feels a lift kit only creates problems to the stock shocks, suspension in general. I really like the look of a 3" kit. I am also wondering If with a 2WD new shocks are still suggested and is a diff drop kit needed on a 2wd? I'm new to all this, thanks.

    I'd check out spindles. You can get 4" of lift and retain your stock front end suspension geometry (read, no need for new shocks, coils or UCA's). You'll probably need extended brake lines though.

    This is what I was getting to. Wanted to make sure you had a 6 lug.
