    Heres my before and after everything ive done so far..

    I recently last month got new wheels and tires, cooper ltz zeon all terrains and XD revolvers matte black, now the only thing im missing is a lift.

    Was wondering if any body had any suggestions?

    Ive heard the bilstein 5100 is a good way to go, i was also looking at some 3'' leveling kits on ebay which are like $89, but i heard those arent to good.
    i was wondering if anyone else had any good suggestions? something to TOO expensive. Thanks

    If u want 3", look into OME......downsouth motorsports has the best prices/customer service and carries the whole line.. call for further info, I don't think they have everything listed on their site..

    5100s will get u 2.5" but wont ride as nice.

    Spacers (leveling kits) have been known to snap shocks even driving onroad.....maybe rare, but why bother?

    Got a budget to work with?

    how much are you willing to spend?

    Certain coilovers are less than $450 each,

    full OME kits are really nice, as are parting bilstein kits with 5100's and coils
