    I run 4" susp with 3" body to fit 38's.. I wish I would have just left the body lift of and trimmed back the fenders (ended up doing it anyhow).. its amazing how top heavy 3" can make you feel when your off camber and crossed up.

    Body lifts are lame, IMO. I think the ORD 1" body lift is OK if you need it after you already have your lift on and need just a little more.

    [/ QUOTE ] You may have to do some minor fender trimming, but that can be a good thing /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm going with a 4" and 2". Yes there are negatives to it but there are also positives, like the fact that your driveshafts will actually work with a 4".

    The body lifts have a time and a place. I went with one because I was happy with the suspension but needed more clearance.
