    IS that what you have bc i was looking at that and was very interested but didn't know if it looked like it was a lift at all… Also what are some good companies to get 6000k HIDs from?

    That is the one I have and it does lift it a bit. It comes with 3" blocks for the back, factory are 2" and the keys for the front lift it to match. If you didn't use the block the front would be higher. As far as HID goes a lot of people use DDM Tuning web site for them. I purchased mine from VVME and have had no issues. they are Hella ballast and I have had them since Jan. 2010.

    6000K will have a slight tint of blue. 5000k is just about pure white light. You should be able to get the whole kit. Make sure you get the relay kit as well. It should be plug and play except for the connection to the battery. Not sure on the fog setup. I didn't do that on mine.

    You should be able to choose different kits online. When you enter your year, model, etc. Then choose which you need.

    I have had great experiences with the customer service at http://www.theretrofitsource.com/

    I bought a dual relay harness from them and it was very high quality.
