    most people here won't match the words 'quality' and 'body lift'. get a suspension lift if you can.

    Body lifts aren't quality. If you want a safe, quality lift you have to pay for it.

    true, IMO it's mostly how much time you spend off pavement. if you drive 99% on road, a body lift won't be too bad, unless you crash. i'm not the most knowledgeable about it, but i've gathered that body lifts perform poorly when/if you crash.
