Body Lift Advise

I have no previous experience with any type of body lift. But I am looking for one now for my TT and future Savvy GTS. But with the plethora of options I wanted to get some opinions on which one/ones I should consider.

I've been looking at the 1" Daystar that replaces the body mounts and the JKS 1.25 that look like pucks that sit on top of the body mounts. What are the pros/cons for each style?

Give me your opinions, $$ isn't a huge influence on this purchase for me.

The daystar is a poly mount which will transmit more vibes
The JKS you'll keep the stock ride feel.

If your stock body mounts are in bad shape go with the daystar

I'm looking into the same and I've been the most interested in the savvy lift:

Or the Currie lift: http://www.currieenterprises.com/ces...9.aspx?id=1200


With this:http://browndogindustries.com/CU2883...ts-Rubber.aspx

If the stock mount bushings are toast there are these, but they will transmit more nvh if that matters to you: http://www.jegs.com/i/Four+Real+Stee...FYhbfgodmGgA1A

I organized my parts list for this summer and I'm not sure I'll get to this myself just yet with all the other high dollar stuff that's more important, but it will be necessary before too long.

I have the JKS and never had any issues. I also raised the fan shroud instead of a MML.

Do the motor mount lift with the body lift. It is a great combo that helps with lots of things.

I put the Daystar on mine and while it works fine, I was a little disappointed that the quality didn't seem to compare with the oem ones I had. If I had it to do over, I would stay with my oem ones and use the spacers...check out the Savvy ones in UFOtestpilot's link.

Thanks the input everyone. I thought about it and will be going with JKS ones after going over my body mounts today. They look to be in decent shape. And Yes the Brown Dog MML is already on my list.
