Lift Kits are Driving me Crazy
I want to lift the old SD about 4", so I have been doing some research and for the life of me can't figure out why I can find a 6" lift all day long from Pro Comp or Fabtech or SkyJacker for around $1000 - $1300 but if I only want 4" I get to choose from Carli's 4.5" and ICON's kits for no less than $1850.
(I am not dogging on either of the 4.5" kits, from what I can tell they are really nice kits.)
I guess I have a 3 part question
1. Are the Fabtech, Procomp or Skyjacker quality products? Do I lose anything by going with them over the Carli or Icon 4.5" like towing or ride quality or handling. (Carli claims to improve all with their starter kit)
2. Are there key parts in the lift that you need to make sure are included or you end up buying separate and paying $1800 anyway?
3. Are there any other companies that offer a 4" kit for a 2006 Crew Cab FX4. ProComp, Fabtech and Skyjacker all start at 6" for my SD.
