    What is the best quality/price option to get a 3" lift? I am looking for a good lift that I won't have issues with down the road, but I don't really want to break the bank... Suggestions?

    billistine 5100 front and rear run you about 300 bucks and with an aal you can have up to 2.5 inches of lift

    I agree. If you want a full 3" you can add some 1/2 inch spacers up front and 1" block in back. But its really not needed. I have the 5100s at 2.5 with a 2" aal in the rear and it looks great!

    Build thread in sig...
    assuming you're running stock UCAs, are you having any allignment issues, or is that only when you get to 3 inches?

    ^^^ That's exactly what I was gonna ask... What do I need to do as far as alignment goes when I put a lift on? I really know nothing about this kind of stuff, I'm an electronics guy haha.

    You'd need after market UCAs (upper control arms) to fix your allignment problems

    There will be no alignment problems with 5100s set at 2.5" with stock UCAs. I just had my truck aligned saturday, and the tech was able to do it perfectly. I think its only when you get to 3"
