while that is true that would not be my reason for not getting a 3 or even 2 inch body lift. i think your best bet would be a combo of both. if you can only get one then a suspension lift is the best place to start.

its also true that a suspension lift doesn't cause dw. dw can happen after the lift is installed but there is some other factor there causing it.

I'm not sure which way I will go, the BL or the SL.
Before I drop the money on one or the other, I just want to weigh the pros & cons first.

But, you're right.
A 2" or 3" body lift WOULD be kinda extreme.

PStov98TJ Yep. Not trying to scare the OP but just be safe with it. You can literally turn the steering wheel a full 3/4 turn before the wheels turn and it's very unresponsive. Oh and you really soil your pants when you hear the "tink, tink, tink" when you're going down the road.
So long story short, check everything on the front end and make sure it's all tight. And if its not replace it with grade 8 hardware. Not the crappy stock nuts/bolts.

This happened to me as well. I was alone thank god. Scary feeling.

"Death Wobble / Body Lift" Correlation ???

I know that you can get DW after installing a Suspension Lift kit.
But what about after installing a 2 or 3 Inch Body Lift?

I am not trying to open a can of worms about DW. Just curious as to whether body lifts could/would cause DW.
