where can I get one? all I can find is 3", but looking at a 2" lifted car as opossed to a 3", I like the way the 2" looks... and I think the 3" might cause a little more drag on the highway. would that inch make any difference or am i worrying too much? should i just get a 3"? thanks in advance.

I'd say go the 3", not much difference in it at all. If you want it to sit a little lower, just get softer springs, that way you won't chew thru those cv's as fast. (but of cause you would have lower clearence.)

Yeah, 27's wernt so nice on the gas. My 25's are pretty nice, but you could go a little bigger without much problem I reckon. Stay under 26" unless you want to offroad lots. :)

that's something i can't decide... i don't know how much i'm gonna offroad. i know with a lift, i'm gonna wanna do it all the time... but i'm developing some rust on the underside of my car and it's basically hopeless to try to fix it... I guess you could say it has cancer. I just plan on driving this one till it falls apart, and when it does take the lift off and put it on something else:grin: man i want a hatch so bad, lol.

Why lift it if your not going to off-road it?

Go with a 3" lift and 27x8.5 Kumho Venture MT's! Take it out and get muddy, you may lose 3mpg but you'll gain 4" in your smile.

So true. But if it's going to be a daily driver, don't put M/T's on it. You'll feel sad when they wear down, plus they are alittle sketchy on the road.

Well those khumo m/ts arent that bad, check out bias super swampers:lol: .. They shake so dang bad and are so loud.(which doesnt bother me but bothers my dad) it was wierd though, because i never even noticed the extra shaking before my tire fell off that time :lol: If its a daily driver, just get some decent all terrains. Just depends what you're idea of offroad is.

Tell ya what, I regret getting the M/T's, the saving I could of had getting normal tires would of paid for an LSD. Which I reckon would be much better. But anyway, I reckon I'll be getting an LSD soon anyhow! :D
