    Lifting the rear an actual 3" will make the rear higher than the front.

    I don't think its a good idea to lift the front more than 3". Your ball joints will not be happy.

    3" is max. If you lift the rear about1.5 - 2" you should sit with a nice little rake.

    "rake" is refering to the rear of the vehicle sitting higher than the front. Like a stink bug. If that is the look you want then go for it. But make sure the shocks you get and the brake line are long enough.
