Both will give you 3" of lift, suspension being superior obviously

Kind of a dumb question here don't you think? I mean, suspension might sag SOME where a body lift won't but you still get almost the same amount of lift.

same, but the bricks are more dense and thus require less occupied space.

interestingly though, both feathers and bricks are less dense than stone...ha

there are 2-8 electrons in an orbital, with He having 1 orbital, thus 2 electrons in the s-orbital.

you could game on-line, but surfing on-line was a pay feature, though apparently it's free now; under wii shopping channel > downloadable channels or something along those lines (per my gf).
On a side note, she got me Super Mario Bros. Wii for my b-day, but she caved and gave it to me today instead of this coming Friday. It's freak'n awesome!

ya price is quite different... obviously!!!.. in my opinion if your only looking for 3 inches of lift go bodylift its cheap and gets the job done!!!

i wouldnt **** around with a suspension lift unless you want like 6 inches of lift.. its not worth it for 3 inches..


redneckstone- how many beers/drinks did ya have??? i hope you didnt get hammered off a 6 pack... haha!!!

I thought $400 for a suspension lift was kind of cheap. Even if it is only 3". Just get spindle lift and body lift and call it a day
