5 inch spindles?

Hey guys looking at getting a SL kit for my 06 2wd. I was wondering if anyone is running this setup or if it will work for my truck.

those arent 5" spindles. they are 3" spinldes and 2" coil spacers. Many people run those. Those crappy leaf spring blocks aren't what you want on the rear however.

Your truck isnt a "sport" or 4x4 correct?

Then that will NOT work for you. You do not have coil springs, you have torsion bars. Those spindles and coil spring spacers will not work on your truck.

Torsion keys (which aren't recommended)
Spindles for Torsion Bar/Edge/Sport trucks
Torsion Crank
Super Lift (they still make it?)
Body lift

are your options

3in lift spindle with a 2in coil spacer for the coil.

Same as the Doetsch kits.

that sucks. I want more than just 3 in. Guess I'll have to do a BL or a little torsion crank. I've searched and read that with 4.10 I can run 33's but what about 35's or will I lose to much.

Have to upgrade to that later down the road when my money is over flowing from my pockets. Have to stick to SL and BL until then.

i would assume so, but double lifting is cheaper than a full 6" lift. $700 + $250 < $2000

Superlift still exists but i thought it was only for 4wd? I haven't seen it on an edge yet.

I'd go with fabtech spindles. I haven't heard very much good about the doetsch spindles

For his gen truck Superlift only deals with 4wd 4in lift.

I ran Doetsch on my 2wd before I sold it. Kit was amazing and did exactly what I was looking for. Clear 33's with no BL. Did that perfectly. I would recommend Doetsch to anyone looking for the lifted look with mild functionality. If you plan on jumping it, DBR or Camburg is your only true option.

Thanks Guys. Ya I just wanna be able to fit 33's with room to flex some. SL (Spindle Lift). 3 in spindle lift and a BL would be plenty of room right.
