I recently purchased, and will be installing the 3" Cornfed Spacer kit, and have been warned about a harsh ride. I know that "harsh" is very subjective, but any experience out there? I know that It won't be like coilovers, or even stock, but should I be prepared for the worst?

Have the same kit, with AALs, and it rides fine. I was coming from an '83 GMC Sierra diesel with solid axles and then a '97 3/4-ton Silverado, so I have experienced rough.

It's not bad. I like the ride.

The ride will be a little "firm" feeling. Which is good for the street, like on/off exit ramps.
Off-road its a little rough. This is becouse with a spacer u have like no down travel at all, just some up which is rough due to the fact that your coils are already some what compressed (pre-loaded) at a stand still.

I have 880's with a 3inch revtek and i have to go off-roading with flat (not literally) tires just to keep the dash from falling out. Stay away from that setup unless u just want the most lift for the least amount of money.

I have the complete 3" CF lift on my 96. It is stiffer off-road, on the road it's great. I run 14# air in my tires off road, which helps the ride significantly.
It's a good lift for the money. Another suggestion would be to get some quick disconnects for your sway-bar, which will help with travel.
