Lift Kit suggestions?
I want a 3 inch suspension kit, because I'm not a fan of body lifts, so I want a 3 inch suspension lift. I was wondering what you guys recommend? I have a 1998 K1500 Z71 4WD. Should I do torsion keys, seeing as I already need to replace my adjuster bolts. Just wondering. Let me know what you think!! I have pics in my picture album or you can just look at the one in my sig.

x2 on the Rancho. I recently installed myself (easier than I thought it would be and I am NOT a mechanic) and am very happy with it so far. After a ton of research and debating over which kit to get finally decided on the Rancho...I did a quick write up as to the reasons...click the link if you want to check out my thoughts in more detail.

It was on sale through Amazon (not sure who they procured it from) and then Rancho had a $500 rebate.

Yeah thats a good deal. I like how they are easier to install because that saves money as well. I found a rough country 6'' lift for $1300 but don't know much about them.

Yes, it was a really good deal because it also came with the adjustable Rancho shocks. I just went to their website to see if there were running any more promos but they are not. The rebate promo I took advantage of ended Aug 31st, so I thought they might have come up with a new one by now.
When researching, Rough Country had a lot of good reviews and for the most part, I really could not find that anyone had consistent or similar negative issues. If I remember correctly, NFab seemed to get some of the best reviews and someone else was even better (can't remember now) but that kit was way out of my budget, so I moved on quickly.

Ha yeah budget has a LOT to do with my choices. I want good performance but at the same time it has to be reasonable. Maybe if I wait more towards christmas they will come out with new offers but I've never been big on waiting!
