    Hey guys I'm about to buy a set of Sway away front coil 3" lift with sway bar, I was wondering do I need to lift the back too to make the ride better? I kinda like the uneven look in the front and rear. Also what are your ratings on the sway away coil over shocks?

    Sway-A-Ways are good coilovers. Set at 3" its gonna be pretty stiff, though.

    but without the rear lift is fine right? also can I still get bigger wheels without doing the rear lift?

    how come the guy at EZlift told me that it's better to go with 2"block better than AAL?

    who knows!!! the aal will ride better, and its also safer than a block. you wont have axle wrap with an all like you will with a rear block.

    Anyone with just 3" lift in the front? I want to see how it looks like before I make my final decision. btw what's the biggest tire I can fit on the back without lifting it? I'm planning to go with something like 295 max for front and back, don't know if it'll work fine?

    Sway a ways are some of the best shocks you can buy. Setting them up to 3" lift is not ideal though, 2-2.5" will handle much better and unless you are getting new upper control arms, you will demolish your ball joints in the front end at 3".




    Because he was obviously misinformed (read: retarded). But he works at a company that builds junk so what do you expect.
