The Body lift will not affect the ride at all. It lifts the body off of the frame to allow more clearance for larger tires etc etc.

The spindle lift is a suspension lift. You will then have to worry about how you would like to lift the rear (add a leaf, lift blocks, new leaf packs etc etc.)

Oh yeah, go to the top right of your screen to the "quick links" link.

There, you can edit your signature and add your truck's specs.

You are talking about a spindle lift, so I assume that you are 2wd?

Body lift won't affect ride quality like Taylor said. And spindles will.

yes, i know it says 98-00 but its the same thing for your 2002. you won't need to cut the frame horns to clear the fog lights as it says in the instructions, thats just for 98-00.

if you've got a manual transmission you'll need to buy the shifter extension also.

I would vote for the spindle lift since you have the 2x4. I think it looks better. The 3'' BL is a great option though.
