    I just bought a brand new 2011 i4 Crew cab, it's so new it's being shipped from the factory to my local dealer and will be here in a week, my problem is I am very limited on time for mods on my truck because I leave to return to college soon......

    Here's my problem, I am looking for a 3 inch lift
    I don't have tons of money to spend but I want to do it right the first time,
    I want to go with coil overs in the front and a block in the back, I will not be doing much off roaring, if any.

    I could really use some opinions on shocks for front and rear as well at options for front coil overs

    Don't do spacer lift at all, and if you do any lift over 2" then I, and alot of other folks would highly recomend replacing the stock upper control arms (UCA's) with something like the light racing ones. There is a group buy right now which will cost ya $375 for em'. It seems like the cheapest lift will be the bilstein 5100's and the next cheapest would be Pro Comp. Pro comp gives you 4 new shocks, strut springs and add a leaves (AAL's)
    Good luck
