    2-3" kits = bad designs. since they don't drop the center section they create wear on all the main parts in the front suspension.

    I had one on my a 93 pickup I had. I liked it, it was the rancho kit. It came with new upper A-arms and diff drop down brackets for the front and add-a-leaves for the rear. i had no problems with CV angles. One thing, just make sure to get it aligned. Hope this helps.

    i've been looking at the rancho kit too. they seem to be the only ones offering a 2-3" kit. thats all i want too. just a little higher that stock. not going too tall on tires cause i only have 3.42s.

    Skyjacker has a 2-3" kit as well, I am pretty certain. My friend put one on his K1500 and it wasn't Rancho but it was name brand. 99.9% sure it was Skyjacker. He ran it with 3" body lift, no trimming he had 35x14.50 Baja Belted HPs on it. It looked pretty good I must say. Rode pretty nice and I think it was just all around a nice truck. Killed the motor, sold the lift, then sold it for parts. He replaced the crap 5 speed with an SM465 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
