    I got nowhere else to turn :rolleyes:

    I would have preferred maybe Billies and an AAL, but should I buy this 3" ProComp Lift ('10 4cyl AC manual)? Same guy also has a body lift that I'll pass on.

    I assume this 3" Lift is non-adjustable (it's more inches than I was actually lookin for)
    Is $350 reasonable? Shipping is killer where I live (near Old Finland ;), and too few shops.
    Or is this lift not worth it. I'm in no rush.
    Would I need UCA's or anything else?
    (i just pulled that out of my ass...i have no idea what i'm doing)
    Thanks in advance for any advice or flaming

    Door sil protectors, rubber bed mat, trimmed mud flaps, WeatherTechs, diff breather relocate, locking gas cap, lighted 4x4 switch, stock radio AUX adapt, eibach with 5100@0 with toytech top plate combo (2.5") suspension lift, arm rests re-upholstered, relentless fab bed bars, hidden cb radio set up, debadged, Total Chaos UCAs
    Its a similar set up to the billies and eibach spring lift, from Toytec lifts. minus front differential drop washers for 4x4. thats not a bad price, but as stated before, most lifts over 2.5" will most likely cause odd cv angles, so i would definately invest in New aftermarket UCAs to compensate.

    My buddy has this lift and he likes it. Only issue hes been seeing is that since the shocks dont have rubber protection covers on them, he has been seeing spots of rust on the shocks here and there and will eventually need new ones. Since its a 3" lift, aftermarket UCA's would be a good idea to get.;)

    I've heard complaints of stiffness on the 2.7. Not a bad lift for the money.

    Thanks a lot, guys, that was faster than a Sunday morning toss while the wife sleeps in!
    Your experience confirms what I've been reading, now I think the final factor in my lift choice will be Pleasing Management Successfully.
    ie i'll get what i get when i get it
    Cheers, and thanks again!
