Lift Ideas

I just did my first mod friday and got 32s on! (ill try to have pics for tomorrow) now i want more lift, but nothing too crazy. i was researching all day and i want to get a pair of shackles for the rear, but i dont know what to do with the front. ive been thinking about cranking the t bars but i dont really want to because it wears out the ball joints and the ride suffers etc. what do you think i should to to raise the front up? and money is a factor so it cant be anything too expensive.

What Pace said, 3" BL. Like $150ish. You'll just need bigger tires (33").

Nothing if you stay with your current tires.
If you get 33"s, you need the obvious alignment, and I think you need to readjust the speedometer or whatever (IDK the correct term).

You don't need a alignment if your just getting new tires, you don't have to recalibrate the speedo either just remember it will be off.

Hence why I said, "I think". Thanks for clearing that up Mr. Morgan.
