    Good afternoon everyone, I am beginning to get everything set up to lift my 2000 ChevyTahoe z71(old body style). I know that I want a 4" lift and it's going to be a suspensionlift as I don't want to risk running spacers for the body lift and it messes with the physics of the vehicle. I am looking for the best cost effective setup I can find, wether it be buying a kit or building my own kit. I also don't have a place to work on it so I will be having a shop do the work. If anyone has done this work before and can give me some pointers I'd appreciate. I'm trying to find the least expensive route I can take to get this done while also not getting complete and utter crap

    I think for a 4" lift you'll need to drop the front differential. But a 3" will just need keys and lift blocks or specific lift springs in the rear.

    If your doing the 4in, Might as well do the 6in, or just crank your torsion bars a little
