Just wondering how big of a lift i can put on my 2005 canyon. Planning on putting the rough country 2.5" levelling/lift kit and was wondering if i could put on a 3" body lift with it. would this just look silly? would this even be possible without having to get longer brake lines and such? Any picture's of people who have this set up would be apriacted.

thanks

I have 3" suspension and 1.5" BL. No brakeline extensions. You should be fine. I'm not a fan of the 3+" body lifts, but that's just me.

You can either crank your torsion bar for a couple inches of lift and install rear shackles, or install a subframe lift.
With a torsion bar lift it is not an 'inch' kit...you have a max limit you can hit then done. You lift more ore less, depending on the current suspension condition. You might not get 3" before max, you might get more than 3". Lift kid numbers generally refer to the amount of a front lift.

Those are your options to combine with a body lift.
