Is there a true 3 inch level kit? I have a supposedly 2.5 inch on now from rough country but it's not level. The front is still and inch lower than the back. Any ideas?

Buy a set of Carli multi rate springs (3" lift), combine with some good shocks (Bilstein 5100's or better), and enjoy the ride.

It's a 3" puck...... that's the kit.

If you didn't already go to longer front shocks, you'll have to. And if you don't like having bent end links, you'll need to get extended ones or drop blocks.

Is there a need to replace the suspension arms with the Top Gun kit?

Nah, you'll be fine with stock CA's and 3"........ but you can't go much more. For the record, I'd spend a couple of extra bucks and get some good springs instead.

Depends on what size tires you hope to run. I have a 2" kit, I had to extend my offset bushings on the lower control arms to stop my 35's from rubbing on the inner fenders. I think 35's on stock whels with a 2" kit will rub your control arms.

On my 2" kit the 35's do not rub anything not even the control arms. With my 18x9.5 wheels with 4.5" backspacing major fender cutting would be required. I ordered a new set of 18x9 wheels with 5.55 backspacing as I have been told that they will clear with no issues.

I've been looking for a price on the Carli kit but have been unsuccessful. Anyone know what the price is for the Carli kit?

I think the Carli kit runs around $350 or $450, somewhere around there. it comes with the springs shocks front and rear set up if you go for the starter kit, not sure on the price of that one though....

Edit, I take that back I just searched their site for the dealers.. prices have goin up since I last looked.... I need to win the lotto !!

A 3 inch kit really requires new extended front shocks. But if you keep the standard shocks and your front end drops far enough like in a hole as you pass by it it will rip your shock apart and you will hear the clanking. I know, I did it. lol

LMFAO. I just received an email from Carli Suspension and they stated that their level kit is $825. Why the hell would I pay that for a level kit when I can get a 4-6" lift kit for less than their price. Thanks everyone for the input. I think I'm going with the Top Gun Customz kit and some new shocks.
