3" body lift
I have a 1997 sport and need a body lift. I heard that if you get a 3" lift that the steering linkage, fuel filler tubes, brake lines etc will become to short and have to be extended. Is this true or have i heard wrong?

Avoid 3" body lifts which are a very poor/problem-prone way to achieve 3" of added tire clearance. If you need 3" of added clearance, the least expensive way to properly achieve that is via a 2" suspension lift or 2" spring spacer lift plus a 1" body lift.
There is no situation where I would ever install a 3" body lift except perhaps at the point of a gun. :p

Seriously don't do a 3" bL. Just do what ^^^ said. Plus a 3"bL will look ugly from all around and their is really no point to it except looks? I guess even though it will look funky
The seller has a make offer button, I'd probably just knock the shipping fee off and offer him $290 and see if he takes it. I mean, I would rather put around $50-60 more bucks into it and get a spring lift. But that is just me :dance:
I really wouldn't suggest the three inch and only the two if you like the look and are willing to do hard work. I was supposed to put in an extension for the fuel hose but just stretched it (prolly not a good idea) and also was supposed to extend the shifter by means of welding but didn't do that either. It's now difficult shifting into first. That's the main reason I'll take off the 3/4
