    If you want full 3", a lot of guys run the full Old Man Emu set up.. It includes the nitro shocks, coils, and I think an Add a leaf in the rear. I heard they are they best ride.

    I have Bilsteins set at 2.5". It is a little stiffer, but it still will ride better than those spacers.

    Just what I've heard about the OME setup. Only good things!

    Go with a set of Old Man Emu springs, they ride and handle 10x better than stock, are inexpensive and improve suspension not just add on...
