Spindle lift is better IMHO, but costs more.
so ur saying a spindell 3 inch body lift is better? will anything happen with the spindells over time? cuz idm paying the $400 or so for it thats nuthing i jsut want it higher nd bad ass when i go to school cuz im tired of seeing these stupid rice burners park next to me....

Im buying the same one. And Shop around for rims. 5 x 4.5 in. is your bolt pattern. Dont go too expensive if you plan on off roading alot. They dont like that. And You can run 33s with a 3 inch BL just fine. they shouldnt rub.
wow thats cheap haha. and wut u mean dont go too expensive if i plan on going off roading? i dont go off roading much unless i head out to the dirt track nd thats rare cuz im so busy in school. mainly city nd highway

It's a suspension lift so IMHO it's better. You're basically replacing a stock solid piece of metal with an aftermarket solid piece of metal, so no not much will happen to them over time.

I mean dont pay Hundreds of dollars for Rims if you go off road. They get ruined and then you regret it. Thats what happened to my old F350. Nice Wheels but I desroyed them by off roading too hard.
