Default Is a "Bodyllift" a bad idea?

I have a 2013 CC Sport 2wd and currently have leveling kit on 33's but want something a litter higher. I cant see paying the $1000+ for the CST 4" spindles so thinking a body lift might work? Would I able to keep my 2" level and just add the body lift? Sorry if this a noob question.

You can do it but I highly recommend doing a suspension lift first.... Body lifts are half assed IMO and I would only do one if I was looking for more lift on top of the max I could do with suspension. Many guys report squeezing and shifting with body lifts as well which would bug me like crazy along with some of the other things that come along with a body lift. Like exhaust not fitting properly, engine being lower in the engine compartment, more frame showing from the side. Stuff like that.... To me the downsides of a body lift outweigh the upsides. I'd recommend spending the money and doing a proper suspension lift.

Kind of what of figured. I guess I will just have to save up the money for the CST

You won't regret it. Trust me. It will look sick and you'll be much happier doing the suspension lift over having problems with the body lift.

Contact Andrew, Jeremiah, or Eric at Bully's Performance (sales@bullysperformance.com). Be sure to mention that you're a forum member and they'll hook you up with some great pricing.
