Teraflex seems to be the popular choice on the forum. Main thing is to be sure to adjust your bumpstops and extra 2" as well. And some new shocks will be nice to have if you've got the money. Rancho, OME, and bilstein are all good choices. I've got an OME lift and love the way it rides.

I just meant the spacers. Maybe $100-$150 for all four. Never really looked into spacers much. And bumpstops can be made with two self tapping bolts and a few $1 hockey pucks for the front, and some $10 extenders for the rear.

Then OME shocks will run you about $160 for 4 if I remember correctly. Maybe $200 for 4 of their nitro shocks (recommended, those are the ones I have).

But all this can be looked up on the various offroad retail sites. Quadratec will be the most expensive shipping wise.

OME shocks are around $90-$100 apiece..

You're right once again. Don't know why I was thinking $50 a piece. Finals are making me lose my mind I guess...

2"BB and the stock shocks ride pretty close to the stock feel.
