make it TALLER

Looks like im going to have to lift my truck again. New tires, i discovered hit the fenders when going over speed bumps. (I'm blessed with 3 in my neighborhood) Anyhow, I cant for the life of me remember what brand my 3" spindle lift is. So which would you reccomend for a 6" spindle?

No. A 6" spindle wouldn't work with stock lowers. They angles would just be too far off. I'm not even sure you could make it fit anyway.

Fabtech and Doetsch make 5.5" kits but they aren't all spindles. They come with 3" spindles and 2.5" coils.

body lift, $250. coils and UCA's plus alignment, 500+

or buy glass fenders.

post a picture of the truck, im running 33" tires with 3" spindles and im a good 2-3" from rubing at full bump.

im thinking your springs are sagged out. heres 33's and 3" spindle look like on mine. like i said, my tires dont even get close to my bodywork.
