    Its my first time getting a lift kit and I been looking around trying to find a good 3'' lift kit. Im not going to do that much off roading. I looked at OME suspension lift kit, bilstein adujustable lift kit with 5100 shocks(backordered), the pro comp 3'' lift kit with es9000 shocks, and pro comp nitro kit lift kit. Remember im not gonna do serious off roading...more of a driving car with looks.

    OME is good, or i'd get 5100s all the way around and an AAL.

    EDIT: IMO I'd stay away from the pro-comp. The first two options stated would be your best bet.

    Agreed. If you're goin' for that kind of height, try scaffolding.

And some other crap
    Is there anyway to set my browser to block any threads containing the number 3 in the title?

    This would get rid of at least half of the threads in the suspension forum and save me so much time.

    Where did you get your spindle lift? When I go to the CST web site it only list parts for the Tundra.
