    there are a lot of options. I'm assuming you want a suspension lift and not spacers?

    I've only had expierence with Bilstien and OME, so I might sound biased :D

    Both have an option to add a small top plate spacer to correct ride height differences

    Bilstein 5100's(highest setting) with stock springs ~ 2.5 of lift but the ride gets pretty stiff
    Bilstien 5100's(lowest setting) with OME 885x springs, or Eibach Springs
    OME 90000 shocks + 885x springs +trim packer

    Could add another leaf or 2 into your stock pack, or get a new set. A spacer is also an option.


    changing out shocks & springs can be done at home too, as long as you have a flat area to work. changing out the leaf pack is doable as well, but a bit more in depth and more time consuming.

    hitting the 3in in the front could cause alignment problems too, so looking at aftermarket upper control arms could come up. some people don't have issues and some do.

    If you going 3" I would say get UCA for sure and the lift kit you buy pretty much is how much you wanna spend and what kind of driving you gonna be doing with your truck

    It will be my daily driver and have no intentions on off roading. Let's just say it'll be "all show, no go" lol! I've been in contact with DH Customz, Auto customs and 4 wheel parts. Haven't decided if I wanna stay at 3" or bump up to 6". Just wanna be sure I can pass recon and safety!
