    just found this lift kit.... i want to lift my truck 3" but will settle for a little less... i dont do any offroading really except for the occasional trip to get somewhere with my dirtbike or wutever... i just want something that will lift around 3" maintain the factory ride.. and not harm or increase wear on any components on my truck... is this good or if not what do you guys suggest? my goal is to keep it cheap but like is said not make it so it harms or increases wear on anything

    so is this kit good as in it wont wear anything faster as if it were stock and is the ride still going to feel as good as factory?

    well....anytime you upgrade with a lift of any type.......things will wear out faster....................but it aint like its gonna be anywhere in the distant future.....especially with a diff drop..................you will be good to go, and the ride will be good too.....maybe a bit stiffer, but like a truck should be.

    I started to go for one of those,but I found some HBS 2.5 front only on ebay for 70 bucks shipped,with the tsb it looks good,could use a little more in the rear.I needed cheap and thats what I got,only time will tell on the extra wear,but hey we'll see I guess.Gonna do a diff drop next and some tires,lol.
