No combination (body+suspension) lift kits in Washington State?

Hi there, I recently picked up a RC 3.25" lift kit (2" leveling kit + 1.25" body lift) for my new 2017 Canyon. I just spoke with a suspension shop and they told me that Washington State won't allow combo kits to be installed. It's legal to install suspension lifts OR body lifts, but not the combination of both. Anyone here have any experience with this? I'm assuming it may be to keep people from overly tall and non-coordinated lifts...but at this small of a lift it seems irrelevant. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Mark

While Washington's lift are on the more stringent side, what you are asking to be done falls within legal guide lines. Max body lift is 4", and be aftermarket mfr'd only, and no specific illegal suspension mods as long as you stay below the max bumper height.
Theyz be blowing you off, methinks.

I've seen two truck's body-lifts fail in grotesquely (but funny) catastrophic ways, which added to the reason(s) why I would never run 'em.
Doesn't surprise me in the least that their heavily regulated somewhere.
I imagine the only reason why Kalifornistan hasn't followed suit, is there's not enough money in it for 'em to police it
