    that lift is good for up to 3". Not sure who would have it cheaper, DSM maybe?

    Save some money by getting different UCA's Either Light Racing, Total Chaos, or the DSM UCA's. THat should cut at least 600 ro 900 bucks of the price. To add, you really dont need the front resis, unless you are running fast in hot weather, and for long periods.

    I just got mine from DSM (hooked it up and great service) but I got the LR UCA from fatbobs for cheap. As far as lift it is more than 1.5". I didnt measure before the lift but here is a picture of mine. I love the ride so smooth!

    Their uca's are way too expensive. Hell, you could even get Camburg ball joint uca's for $400 if you really wanna save some money.

    Wow see you guys are full of great money saving info. I will go back and look at DSM. I'm usually into buying the best, but if the best does not cost a fortune, i am in. Chris, thanks for the input on the fronts.

    Fatbobs has LR UCA for cheaper. LR are less maintenance than the Total chaos.
