AEV 3.5" Lift

So I know better than to ask what the best lift is...everyone has an opinion...everyone has different expectations...

I'm thinking about ordering the AEV 3.5" Premium Lift tonight. Anyone know of a reason that I shouldn't buy this product? I'd prefer actual experience to speculation. Thanks.

OK...so shortly after posting this thread, I heard from a gentleman named Dave at Poly Performance. While I'm familiar with Poly's reputation for customer service, I certainly did not expect for someone to contact me 45 minutes before his company Christmas party and talk to me about lifts. While Dave was professional enough not to badmouth AEV or it's products, he was able to put together a comparable package to the AEV 3.5" kit with the addition of lower control arms. So...a VISA transaction later...I'm expecting that my cool new parts will be shipping from Poly on Monday. I'm still under the impression that AEV makes good stuff...and I'll likely be purchasing some of their products in the future...but I'm a sucker for good customer service and I was impressed tonight.

I expect that I'll be following up with my review of the actual product in a couple weeks.

This is a great story and how real business is done. This is how you secure a sale! Props to Poly.

I'd love to spend some real time with the Poly kit to see how it stacks up against my AEV and the RK I had before that.
