Ordered my lift spindles tonight!

Well I ordered my lift spindles off of ebay tonight so I hope they get here fast! I dont know what all they come with so I am kinda screwed in that department I know I am going to have to get bigger blocks in the back till I can afford add-a-leafs. What size blocks do you think would level it out with the torsion bars cranked?

I already have my 35's sitting in the garage so next up I will be regearing to 4.56's and getting a reciever hitch in the back.

why not hold off on the hitch for a few weeks and just get add a leafs, i think they are $30 or so.

or you can just get some 6 inch blocks

You only need like 2" blocks to level it out for just a torsion crank. If that's what you were talkin about

your gonna need like 5" blocks, & it still may not be level

(cuz spindles are 3.5", and you already had 2" block stock, so 5" will give you 3" extra lift in rear)

+ torsion crank, hmm your looking atleast 6" block to obtain 4" in rear

I already have 4.10's and 4.10's are not strong enough for 35's. That is why I am going to regear to 4.56's I am going to put limited slip in the rear not a locker.
