What exactly do you mean it is all over the road? It drifts? Driving over bumps or dips in the road causes its steering to dart left/right? It pulls to the side when the brakes are installed? So exactly what does that "all over the road" mean?

Improperly installed suspension lifts can cause that, installing dropped Pitman arms when they shouldn't have been can cause that. Improper front-end alignment commonly causes that. But if the world's best suspension lift was installed & if any of the above same issues existed, the new suspension lift would do the same thing.

Stay under 4 inch lift because 4" or more your going to need a SYE and CV DS. A 3" lift is plenty.

What is your budget?

I'm in the $500-$800 budget and after many hours of reading on this forum I've decided on a 4" Zone lift by BDS. I will also b regearing to 4.56 from stock 3.07

If money is no issue then it seems everyone on here is pro Currie brand lifts. I have yet to hear a bad thing about them.

Good luck.

How do you know 3" lift is plenty for him? How do you know he doesn't want a SYE? Just curious.

why lift it? start cutting. DIY highline front fenders. slice your trans tunnel lift the drive train up for a flat belly and wheel it.
