What gears do you have now? What size tires do you plan on getting?

The 3.73s will run 31" but you'll notice a difference on the little 3.0. I'd recommend 4.10s

Nah there will likely be more body roll but it shouldn't affect anything else. And your welcome.

It's lift not left just FYI and no it will have no affect on speed or get up and go, it'll just affect your handling like body roll like what was already mentioned
