I didn't even think of just getting new longer shocks. That was what I was worried about was having a stiffer ride or premature wear of shocks. I'm satisfied with what I got...for now.

I thought about getting the CST 4" lift as well. I paid 300 for the level, and I think the lift is only like 500. But I wanted to start slow since this is my daily driver. Plus, I can't afford new...
