    I'm looking for a complete lift kit for my 2012 four door. Something like 3" front and 1" rear complete with the upper control arms, differential drop and coil over struts. Is there a vendor that sells the complete kit?

    Satoshi'd grill. blacked out badges. aftermarket sound system. De-chromed and color matched. OME 885s + Dakars with 3rd leaf removed. LR UCAs. Scs stealth 6 with 285 duratracs. BAMF sliders
    The upper control arms usually aren't in a package deal. I believe downsouth motor sports has a package deal with UCAs like they have a front package with icon coilovers and UCAs or their midtravel package includes UCAs. But if i were you i would just look for the lift kit and get the UCAs separate, all the brands should be compatible with any coilover.

    I went with Sonny at Down South Motorsports. All you need to do is call, tell him how you drive your truck and what you want and he'll set you up right, plus customer service is awesome from them!

    I just went with coilovers and rear shocks, no UCA. Since I am not cranking my coils up over 2 ish inches and my coils are not extended travel i dont need UCA's. By the way, an extended travel coil over will only get you ~7/8 inch of extra down travel at the wheel.

    Just call and he'll put together a package thats right for you and right the first time!

    Well are the RediLift lift kits any good? They use the original struts but look good to me.

    So what makes a spacer over the strut inferior? My truck is pretty much a mall cruiser that needs more clearance for the speed bumps.

    Well from what I've seen, there are a lot of full coil-over lifts running around that won't see air or boulders. What I need is a bit of lift. My truck is new and already has some nice Bilstein shocks. What are my options without going over the top with thee suspension?
