    I rather doubt you will have any worries about cv angles, due to the lack of cvs.:)

    ^ x2 on the CV's. How much are you wanting to spend? OME makes a lift kit for around 600 IIRC or Fox and companys of that nature are going to be considerable more!

    Well not if you are just going with a nice coilover in the front. Once you start messing around with the rear lift lots of people start to experience vibrations which have fixes but still an inconvience.

    well if you go above 2 inches it would be a good idea to get upper control arms to get a correct alignment.

    Another option is spindles for 1000 bucks pretty much you get 4 inches of lift no strings attached

    the easiest way is just buy a set of billy 5100 and set then at 1.75" i think thats the right number, and sit level without messing with anything else. they are pretty cheap as well!

    If you get spindles, do you still need UCA's? I am also looking for a good 3 inch lift (do not want spacers) and have been looking at the OME kit (i just drive to work and back, no offroad) Would spindles be more beneficial? If so, who sells spindles (Brands)?

    I run the camburg which are 4" but total chaos makes a set thats 3.5". No you do not need UCA but they spindles cost upwards of 1k but are worth every penny!

    Would the billies work with my stock springs, or would it be a good idea to get a coilover? Do I need a AAL in the back with adjustable billies? I have the TSB springs - how much lift in the back would I need for 3"?
