    I am on the verge of buying a lift kit for my truck, but i have one quick question. On a scale from 1 to 10, how much excess wear and tear is a lift kit for your truck? Now keep in mind if i get one i will be getting the front diff drop kit, rear axle degree shims, and driveshaft carrier bearing drop kit to minimize wear and tear. I don't feel like having to constantly sink money into my suspension and u joints and cv joints and all that crap just to get an extra 3 inches. If i get those accessories what can i expect as far as negative side affects from the lift? Secondly, would those of you with lifts recomend them or do you regret doing it. Any solid info on the subject would be GREATLY appreciated.
