    are you asking because you want to save money, or are you asking because you want to buy the better of the two and just want confirmation?



    Do it right the first time. Get the better setup.

    +1 just get the better setup the first time. Either way you will get tired of the cheaper lift and upgrade, so you might as well just go ahead and do it.

    yeah go with the lift not the spacers, but you can get the billys cheaper on downsouth motorsports, and if you say you're a member on here you get a discount, and i don't think you'll need the diff. drop

    well if you aren't going bigger the 3" the no you don't need the diff drop. and it depends on the rear if you are planning to haul or tow crap. but the single leaf should be fine
