Re: 3 inch suspension lift
</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
You do NOT want a 3" Suspension lift, the whole idea of the lift is to drop things down and restore all the suspension and steering geometry back, or close to factory settings. The 3" lifts require you to crank you the torsion barsto get a good part of the lift. The 4" and 6" systems all use drop brackets and such to drop everything so there is very little, if any torsion bar cranking needed. The torsion cranking is what puts everything into extreme angles, such as CVs. This also puts alot of stress on all of the ball joints and such. If I missed something, anybody feel fre to chime in.

I don't understand why people keep saying this. I have looked at four or five 3" suspension lift kits, and they ALL had diff drop brackets, so even though the torsion bars are cranked, the CV angles remain the same. And, they all included new upper control arms to relieve ball joint stress...so why does everybody keep slamming these kits with these arguments??? Help me understand...
P.S. the kits I have looked at are for Tahoes.
