Default Rough Country 3" lift - Thoughts?

Looking at the 3" lift kit for my 97 Ram 1500. I like the longer springs vs. spacers for the front. Any one have any suggestions or comments on this kit? With front coil springs, 4 control arms, drop bracket and bushings, 2 rear block and u-bolts, 4 new shocks and shipping my total will be around $570. I was hoping to get it a little cheaper but I havent found it.

I am new to this type of thing, I finally have a truck I am not scared to f around with and change some stuff so I am curious what you guys think.

Also does anyone on here sell these?

Rough Country lifts are nice and are priced pretty good also, but beware they sometimes leave parts outa the kits so before you start tearing everything down take invintory of everything the kit to make sure everything is there.

I'd probably use that kit...but I'm not a fan of stacking rear blocks so I would order in a 2 inch add a leaf and install it instead. Just my .02
