Thanks for all the help from before, I've made a couple posts asking about suspensions parts etc, but now I know exactly what I wanna get.

I just need help choosing the best parts :lol:

2" lift, no more no less, maybe 2.5" front 2" rear , wheel SPACERS not adapters, because wheels are expensive :oops:

Replacing the front struts as well, flipping the uca ball joint thingy, and maybe replacing some other parts that are NEEDED.

So, BUDGET-WISE, whats the best 2" lift, BDS, Rough Country? Also where do I get MarkMC Liftmeister parts, because the website is down :/

So bassically, I'm just getting 32" tires w/ wheel spacers, new front struts, and 2" lift. What's the best options available?

Liftmeister apparently is no longer selling lifts, but if you contact MarkMC directly he may be able to supply you with some wheel spacers still. I agree on what you're doing with spacers instead of adapters. The cost of wheels is hard to justify.

I had good luck with the BDS lift a while back, and experienced good tech support from them.

So far, seems like i'll be purchasing the Rough Country 2" lift, getting wheel spacers from MarkMC, buying bilstein 4600's front struts from amazon/wherever, and installing all this myself (and flip the uca myself)
My back (with new shocks) shits alittle higher than the front, so I almost want to get a 2.5 front and 2" rear, so is there any place I could get a .5" block or something to add onto the rough country? or just buy a 2.5"f - 2.0"r lift? Thanks for all the help guys, I just want to make sure im getting the right/best parts for my TB :D

Don't worry about the .5" rake, once you put a few things in the back it'll level out.

Have you ended up installing this yet? I'm looking at the Rough Country set myself, and wanted to see how you like it.
