Best Lift For Best Value

Hey guys. I have a 2007 classic and i'm looking at different suspension lift options. Im trying to find the best kit for the lowest price. I'm looking for a 6" lift and heard FabTech were pretty reliable but i'm curious if there is a lift as good for less than $1500. I understand FabTech also came out with a 6" Budget Lift but is that a reliable and smooth riding lift option. Lets hear your opinions on brand, price and drivability! Thanks y'all!

They're cheap and great quality ! I had it at one point. Install was easy, it rode great and fit and finish was second to none!

Well since the stock rims are on for winter i'm thinking i might as well wait and order it in the spring when the 20's go back on. No point of ordering it to have it sit in the shop for 3 months lol
