You should have a stock 2" block and you also do not put spindles in the rear. An AAL will suit you fine.

You block is stock, judging by the picture in your album.

i wouldnt go with torsion keys. they will eat up your suspension. plus you can get a body lift for less from summit. or a spindle lift for a little more

Start saving for a super lift or body lift.

Get a BL or a Superlift, Torsion keys are a waste of money and a pile of garbage. A body lift is $150ish and a Superlift is well...over a grand if I'm not mistaken.

you guys say that the keys are garbage. what about the prekey mod, that doesn't cause damage.

of course, i just answered my own question. his is a 03 mine is an 08. so he's already got that extra lift i don't.
