You can find the spacers you want online mate. Check bits4bolts. Though for a 3'' lift you'll need diff spacer, brake pipes to be elongated and extending the gearing system Wink

2" is easiest

you only need shocks and springs but for any lift youll have to change something

HAve just fitted a 2inch suspension lift from trail master to my 95 vit
Only major modification is to drop the front axle using the supplied drop brackets, more expensive than just fitting spacers and you don't get any extra hight, but the old shocks were shot.
If your planning on spring and strut spacers I would definatly get the front diff drop kit and camber adjustment bolts from bits4vits
