    Best inexpensive rear lift?

    I replaced my front springs and struts with Old Man Emu, which added about 2.5 to 3" of height, I havent done anything to the rear other than the TSB Leaf Springs. So im riding a little baha right now (low in the rear). I want to raise up the rear about 3 inches or so, What would be the least expensive way to do so without compromising the capability both with payload and towing and also on the trail. This will probably be temporary becuase once I can afford it I will replace the springs and shocks.
    However I lift it do I have to replace the rear shocks?

    You should get a 3 inch body lift in the rear.
