Best Bang for the Buck

Well, I've got my tuner and exhaust and now I've got my eye on a 4-4.5" lift. In your opinion, who makes the best kit for the money. Looking to spend around $1000-$1200 new, but I'll most likely buy it used. Thanks

I've been on their site and saw they have the BDS 4" and CST 4.5" for a good price

Go with a 6 inch lift man, you will thank me later. Once you go with the 4.5 you will realize its not high enough.

You'd definately want the 6" but stay away from ProComp of any size.

I know I'm on here a lot suggesting PMF(Trevor) but I really can't say enough good stuff about him, his products and the value when buying from him. His customer service is good as you could ever hope for, the products are all custom made to what you want, top quality and the prices are very very reasonable(especially when you consider that he uses the Icon progressive rate springs).

Trevor's username on here is NotStock, and the website is precisionmetalfab.net. He hasn't got the lifts up on his site yet, but I'll testify that the 7'' that I have is AMAZING.

Here's a link to an install of a 4.5'' Kit installed by another member.... Installing my PMF 4 link suspension

I've tried contacting Trevor but haven't received any response. I guess I'll try one more time.

I definitely agree with the guys suggesting 6" b/c I do think it looks better...BUT I've had a 6" lift before and although it looked GREAT it became a PITA. I think for my needs a 4.5" lift would be the most feasible. But, now that yall got me thinking again....

Just be patient with it, he's at SEMA I believe. PMF is a very small company from what I gathered(fact that you call Trevor on his cell is a good indicator), so he's probably just busy running around and all... It'd be worth your wait...
