    I need a cheap route to get a good looking 2-3 inch lift to complete my look. Any ideas?!

    Do you want a kit or new suspension though?
    A kit being blocks, shackles, AAL, etc. Suspension being full OME or billy5100s and new, beefed springs, as an example.

    Kits are cheaper...

    ^^ Yeah, Try to stay away from blocks and spacers, you will regret getting them! I did. They ride rough and harsh, thats why they are the cheapest way of lifting.

    I would reccomend the OME 3" lift with AAL in the rear from Toytec. Great Price and ride.

    Go with the bilstein adjustable 5100 shocks (set at 2.5") in the front and rear. Get shackles for the rear 1.5". That is the route I went. Easy to install. Ride is better too. They have them at downsouth motorsports.

    So if you go with the 5100's you get the lift with a good ride without having to purchase anything else???

    No spacers? uses stock springs???

    you could get 881 coils in the front so you dont have to go the spacer route

    ^I had thought about that route myself, but my strut/shocks are shot anyhow... Thats why I am thinking more along the line of the 5100's if they will give the lift without even using a spacer.

    Yes all you will need are the shocks for the front. They are designed to be used with the factory coil. You can get 2.5 " out of the front. You will need an aal, shackles, or blocks for the rear to get the 1.5"
