06 Suspension lift yet?

Ok so my friend just got his truck about a month ago and after one trip out wheeling with us he decided it was time to go taller. Anybody know if there is a lift out there for his truck?

actually now that I think about it you are absolutely correct, it does say sport on the back of his truck

And I know you said it's all the same from 01-06, but are you 100% sure that if he gets fabtech spindles they will go on absolutely ok? Thats why I'm asking if there is an 06 lift.

I actually have the fabtech and am quite happy with them, not saying they are for everyone. and yes he is very much stuck in that pic. that was taken only a week after the paper plates were removed.

i acully know you have fab spindles i remeber but if he was to buy them new i wouldnt recommend them the procomps are just slighly better they dont increase the track width in the front making the rear look narrow. and you can use stock wheels with them if needed for a time. personally i know your happy with them but i would steer your friend to the procomps

Yeah he knows the options on them, the difference in track width and whatnot. He said that he likes the widened look...I dunno. I personally didn't know that they did that until after the fact. *shrugs* Well I'm glad to know that he actually has an available option.

yeah i know what you mean dude. ive been searching for the longest time to find those spindles from procomp, but nobody seems to know exactly where you can buy them, and even if you do find a vendor they never have those specific ones. But I know that you can find doetsch spindles. everybody has been buying those. go to doetsch-shocks.com you can buy them on ebay as well through suspensionmax

ok..zack is right.

01-06 XLT 2wd & XL 2wd are the same....coil suspension.

01-06 EDGE/SPORT(same but different name) 2wd & 4x4, XLT 4x4 are torsion sprung. If the kit says it's for an EDGE......It'll fit the SPORT. If the kit says 4x4....no fit for you.

I looked at the doetsch kits and they come with a rear block application but i want the add a leaf for the rear. Any one have the pro comp spindle lift on there truck and if so where did you buy it.

dude, you can just tell the company that you want shackles instead of those blocks. they are a cheap and easy way to lift the rear 1.5" and then if you want go out and buy some aals.
