Re: Lower or lift?

Lowering springs require shocks that are valved to handle the increased spring rate. Stock shocks will work initially but will wear out soon when combined with any lowering springs. I would put on SRT sways, keep the stock shocks unless they are worn, and call it a day.

But for a daily, and nothing but regular street driving, you're probably better of keeping it stock. You won't stress other components like steering components, you won't hurt your MPGs, you'll maintain a decent ride quality (not a dump truck like ride like mine), and you won't spend all that money on a lift/drop and want to change it in the future. Once you start modding, you get the itch to keep modding. It's a pretty unrelenting itch.
Yea that itch will get you. I agree with the keeping it stock. However you can do mods in the meantime to support lowering it lifting it later on down the road. Mods such as swaybars and a set of bilsteins hds can benefit a lifted or a lowered rig. Do some HIDs and maybe some exterior or interior mods too in the meantime.

Personally of keep it stock height, nice rim and tire package and some small mods to keep you interested in the vehicle.
