    spacers will be ok, if you plan to not off road that much/save money. but they can put extra strain on the stock shocks/coils and snap them

    X2 can't go wrong with that setup. I wouldn't go the the spacer route for sure. I made my mistake jumping the gun and getting a spacer lift when I got my truck and now am going back and putting on eibach coils+5100s and a 2" aal.
    Should have it all on soon and now wont have to worry about busting a strut or something like that when I'm offroad.

    Yes 185$ for both front shocks. You'll need new rears if you want to lift the rear more than one inch. Atleast I did on my 2nd gen idk about 1st gens. I would imagine it'd be the same thing.

    If you are dead set on 3" instead of 2.5, you can run a thin top plate spacer on top of the billys. If you go over 2.5" though, with any lift, you'll likely need new UCA's, which cost around $500.

    Im not set on it. i can do 2.5'', 3'' was just my first idea. 2.5 will still look good. its not that big a difference.
