    If you've got 3 grand to drop, you need to be talking top tier coilovers and leaf packs.

    TC or Camburg UCAs.

    Icon, King, Fox front and rear, get some custom Alcan on top of your live axle.


    That said, that's way overkill for what you say your usage is. If you're just doing light offroad stuff, OME will give you all the capability you need and it way cheaper.

    i dont have 3 grand to drop on just the lift!! thats for new tires and rims as well. i figure that probably leaves me with about 16-1700 for the compenents of the lift!!

    1337Taco, please elaborate. I want to get as much input from others as I can before I go spending that kind of cash!!

    Top tier coilovers are around 1100-1200, UCAs are about $600, rear shocks about $400. Add-a-leaf for stock leaf packs is about $80. You still have a grand left for tires and wheels.

    But again, do you NEED that much suspension? OME or Toytec will get you the same look and save you about a thousand bucks...if you only offroad lightly, you will NEVER use the capability of this top-end stuff.

    Out of those options I would probably choose the ome setup but I wouldn't put a top plate spacer on it. I would also switch out the light racing uca's for tc uca's.

    I have icons in the front and they are amazing. I also have walker evans and a aal in the rear and i'm very pleased with them. For just a little bit more then the OME you can get a really nice set of coilovers
