Advice Plz

Im looking to lift my 02 Edge. And i want a good lift not some cheap s**t thats going to break on me after a couple of months. I want something thats gonna last for a long time and withstand all the beating i put it through. So give me some ideas of what to use besides fabtech and camburg. And NO body lift only suspention. Thanks!!

You might not want to change the color of the font when you post. I had to highlight it in order to read it.

Fabtech and Camburg are both really good. From my understanding Camburg is very expensive, but you get what you pay for.

What sort of things will you be doing with your truck? That will help us give you a better idea of what sort of lift to go for. Dunes? Trails? Mud?

Pooh Bear, get Camburg's 6.0 kit. Good price, great performance, can't beat it for the money.

And THANK YOU for being against body lifts, I swear I'm the only one on here that thinks their worthless (in structure and performance).

Who said anything about being against body lifts, he/she may not want one on the truck but may not be against them. Dont assume anything as you could waste your breath.

for the price go with a 3.5" procomp spindle lift and a add-aleaf with a like 3" rear block that should be sufficiant. and then run a 15x8 rim with a 3.25 OR 3.75 Backspacing and a 33x12.5x15 tires and your set

before we just recommend a spindle lift, what sort of price range are you looking at here...

Don't listen to zach he's still blinded by all 4,000,000 watts of his lights.
Just kidding zach. he brings up a very good setup, for 2wd, spindles is cheap, simple, and will give you what you want as far as lift / look wise. Now if you are looking for a trailready kit, somthing to do a little dunnin in now that I see you're from Cali, Like trent said the Camburg 6.0 is a killer kit. I know at least 2 people that have it on their 2wd and have yet to hear 1 complaint.
