Screw them and do it your self and get some buddies to help.
I was wondering the same thing... How can a body lift mess with the alignment... Maybe he planned on cranking your torsion bars.

a lift only messes with the alignment if you do a suspension lift....

Well I changed my mind and I'm just going to get a superlift. I was trying to sell one of my bikes and I sold it just awhile ago. So superlift here I come ! Should I get that installed or do it myself ?

I'm pretty good with tools , the body lift just seemed to time consuming. The superlift seems easier . ?

The bodylift is definately easier. If you have the tools and know how and the time you should do it yourself and save the money.

I figure if I can do engine swaps on Hondas , I'll be ok doing a suspension lift.

Thanks guys for all of your help.

Do yall think a 94 2wd xlt would look better with a doubled up 3" body lift or should i save my cash and go for suspension lift. its mostly for looks but after a good rain i like 2 get a lil muddy, and im thinkin bout puttin 31/10.5/15 on it. wanna get a few opinions before i start spendin money and i figure this would be the place 2 ask around

Did you really just say a DOUBLED up 3" body lift? (6 in body lift) First off, its illegal and wont pass inspection. Second, its dangerous....too much stress on the bolts, they will break and the cab/bed will fall off....Get a susp lift and be done with it.

well i mean if he wants to sit in between the frame and bed he will be good...

please dont stack bodylifts it is one of the dumbest things...a spindle lift is like $200-300 and a set of shackles is $40 plus and AAL $40 and you will have around 3-4" of lift...you can put a single BL on top of that and be ok
