    I would not recommend either lift for you. In the long run, it will be bad on your stock suspension and limit travel. It will also stress your coil overs a bit using that spacer. I had one and once I removed and replaced it with a aftermarket coil over, you will notice a huge difference in handling and smoothness.

    Don't know what your spending limit is but here some to help:

    Get the OEM lift. It will be worth every penny.


    Here is a cheaper 3 inch lift I've seen some people have good thoughts about.

    Fixed it for ya. The OME lift is nice thats what im running. I'd stay away from the procomp lifts as from what ive heard the ride will be pretty stiff.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, and it's a prerunner but I'm not gonna do too much wheeling, mostly for looks and mild offroad capability
