A 2.5... Don't lift it! It will have no power at all! Lowering would be nice but I'd just get a leveling kit and for exhaust just don't worry about it. You'll get hardly any gains for the money

Any really, just read reviews on them! All it is ( I think ) is a coil spacer so it shouldn't be THAT hard to install

Well if you do want to level it, there's a ton of people of here that have plus it should have instructions and I'm betting there's videos!

Would you recommend leveling it instead on lowering and lifting it

Oh heck yeah! Lifting requires $$$ and a crap Of work plus it doesn't really do anything... It's not like the ground clearance is increased plus it will take all your power! But lowering would be easier but more costly
