    Springs will lower it if you want or lift it and the sky is the limit when you go up in lift.

    For 3", I'd add a leaf to the front springs and use a block or add a leaf in the rear. Cheap, safe, and effective. 3" won't be enough soon anyway, and you can step up to 4" or 6" without too much money wasted.

    blocks in the front are illegal in most states and very dangerous /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif please don't use blocks in the front
    as for lift you can get spring lifts that are 2in 2.5in 4in 6in and so on and will come with either spring rear block rear (its ok to use blocks in the rear) or you can do a 2.5in or 4in shackle flip in the rear
