    Ok guys, I am too poor to buy my lift outright and I am going to have to buy the pieces as I have the money. There are a lot of threads out there about lifts, I know. But if buying a little at a time, what do you guys recommend? I am looking for a 3-in lift and I feel I can buy better components if I buy a little at a time.

    So what do you think?

    Wait and save your money so that you can do the entire upgrade at one time. It will save you a lot of money in the long run and allow you to not have to compromise to make things work while you are in the transition from old to new.

    ...stuff
    Piece together if you want/need something specific, otherwise the kits are a better value. Get a 5100 or Eibach kit and call it a day

    This.

    The normal run of the mill is cheaper as a kit. Has everything covered. Unless your building a crazy set up.

    That being said don't read too much into this but if you're struggling take a step back and have some patience and self restraint. It'll help with more than just this purchase

    Be patience. Do a proper build no spacers or blocks.

    I bought a few components and stashed them in the garage. While I was waiting to purchase more stuff I changed my mind and upgraded the stuff I had already purchased. Turns out I spent considerably more money this way...
