    bilstein 5100 front shocks. provide up to 2.5 inches of lift and you wont have to worry about replacing your stock springs or UCA's unless you desire to do so. I'm running bilsteins on stock uca's and springs and the ride quality is awesome. just a slight highway wandering that doesn't bother me at all.

    good way to find help! the search option to find information. most TW members are more than willing to help with questions etc but you have to put in some effort yourself

    Don't know why anyone is even helping this guy. He openly stated he was lazy.
    make a 2 inch body lift out of hockey pucks. you'll be fine. Don't worry about searching to see if its safe or not. Wouldn't want you to hurt yourself. Just know its about the most inexpensive 2 inch lift you can get.
    Although why are you even asking, you obviously aren't going to install the lift yourself if your to lazy to look up a link your going to be to lazy to lift up a wrench.
