    Cheapest way to 3\" of front lift?

    Looking for the cheapest way to get 3" in the front. Don't care about ride quality right now.

    well. you asked for the cheapest way. he gave you the cheapest way.

    2.5 inch front springs for 300 for the kit. use the same old shocks. then a 40 dollar zero rate up front and a 4 or 5 inch block out back.

    zero rates, add a leaves and longer shackles are the cheap ways to lift on the front end. Take your pick...

    Thanks for all of the comments and comedians. Both are appreciated.

    Who sells longer shackles? I probably also get the TC AAL's. My front end actually sits lower than the rear on this thing.

    Advacne Auto Parts sells the lift/lowering shackles, but I don't recomend them.
