Default Lift Questions

I have been day dreaming at work about lifts and suspension ect.. And I got on ebay and found a few things and was wondering if it would all work out. I want to lift my truck, didnt want a body lift but a suspension lift costs an arm and a leg so it might be my only option right now. the things i have came up with are, 3" leveling kit with new front shocks($250), 3" rough country body lift($150), and a rear add-a-leaf($50), so all together $450. I want the truck to look level and not sagging in the front ( I hate whenever trucks sag in the front ).

I cant bring up ebay over here do you have a part number and maker for that 3in leveling kit I havent seen anything over 1.5 and 3in is pretty wild? The body lift you will be good to go with.

"Truxxx 3" Front Torsion Keys & Superlift Front Shocks" is the name of the levelling kit, never heard of it before but says it will raise the front of my truck 3". the price has lowered on it since the last time i saw it and if they still have it in about a month it'll be mine

Just crank your bars then you can run 33s easy with that or a 3in body lift also I just seen your a edge you dont have coils so a coil spacer wont work. ( the coil spacer thing came from RPS I seen your post over there also) I wouldnt even both with those keys from what I hear alot of people dont like them.

You can run 32s stock. That is what is in my avatar with a t-bar crank. Say no to torsion keys. Get some spindles and run 33s.
