This should answer your question. I enquired about a 2" body lift as this is the max allowable in AUS. 3" is available But I personally think it is too high.

Not really, the issue is the stock body mount bolts/studs stick out over 1.5" from the body mount bushings. With the 3" kit, we use a bolt extension 3" long and that has a 1.5" deep threaded recess that screws on those studs and then has a section of threads screwed into the other end ~1.5" with 1.5" of exposed thread. With a 2" lift, you would have 1/2" or less of room to thread that end into so it would likely not hold very well. The 1-3/8" blocks fit onto those extra long studs without needing an extension. Thus the reason for the two existing lift heights.
