I've been looking at the RC 3.25 inch lift and need to have some clarification on what else I would need to modify so everything runs smoothly. I live in austin and go to UT, so wheeling is not going to be a common practice, along with budget restraints. So what all am I looking at needing to do with this lift, or perhaps an similar 3 inch lifts as well. It's just going to be a daily driver for now, with the lift being to beef it up and make it look better.
Thanks in advance!
Depending on budget you have a lot of options. Since you're not going off road you don't need a Coil Spring lift. If you're staying on the road 100% of the time, you can probably get away without new shocks. These Spring Spacer
should work for you. If you'd rather have a kit with shocks, this 2 Inch Rough Country
one would work.
If you combine those with the Rough Country 1.25 Inch Body Lift
and you're lifted enough for 33's on the cheap.
A suspension lift is a better option if you want some added functionality for off road, but they'll run you more money.
Let me know if you have any questions at all!
