I was curious as to how to go about lifting a regular cab 2wd Canyon. I'm only looking for about 2-3". What methods are out there and quality of parts?

A body lift will be your cheapeast option. I know Rancho makes a kit for them that isnt too bad bad from what Ive heard.

Spindle lifts are pretty cheap also.

Spindle lift gets you more ground clearance, body lift doesn't.

Are the rear leaves under the axle like the s-series, or over? If they're over, you could use spindles and blocks, just like a drop, but backwards.
