    If I order a 3 inch spacer lift. Do I NEED to get new front shocks as well? My friend said he ordered the smae lift for his 99 and he didn't need new front shocks, so I just want to make sure that there is no change in them.

    You should return the spacers and get adjustable bilstein 5100s for a lift ;)
    No you don't need new shocks for a spacer lift.
