    Before I get blasted, I have searched. I know there's issues with 3" lifts and alignments without new control arms. But I am leaning towards a 6" lift and I don't see much information on alignment issues. I'm not ok with castor or camber being "a little off". I want it to be spot on. Of the Fabtech and the ProComp 6" kits, which one has issues with getting the alignment right? Are both fine, or are other parts needed to be purchased other than what's included in the kits? I don't want to wear out $1200 or more worth of tires early because I can't get the front end tracking straight. Does anyone have any input on this? If it's posted somewhere else, I have overlooked it, because I have yet to find it. Thanks.

    6" lift should give you less alignment problems, if any, than a 3" lift. The 3" lift pushes the limits of what is already there. The 6" kit moves everything down with brackets.
