Body Lift or Suspension lift?

What do you think? Isuzu Rodeo 1998. I can get a kit for body 3" lift. What you think about a suspension lift? how high could I go?

Re: Body Lift or Suspension lift?

suspension is easy (new springs, shocks, and crank the trosion bars), 3"

Body lift, if you have an automatic you are limited to about 1", if you have a stick you can get the full 3"

hit up: www.independent4x.com pricing.

not to mention, unless you are lifting mainly for cosmetic reasons, a body lift is pretty worthless. You can't go very high with it to begin with (b/c of the drivetrain) and you get essentially no mechanical benefit. All you have is a little extra BODY clearance which you probably won't ever even need b/c your unchanged suspension clearance won't be enough to get you into an area where you need it in the first place.
in case you were wondering, what i'm saying is that if you are going to lift, do it for the right reasons....or at least go for the suspension lift just in case you do decide to use those pretty new wheels and tires you'll be purchasing.
