Too bad you don't have coils...spindles aren't that expensive.

He probably was thinking of coil spacers. You put them on top of the coil; in between the top of the coil and the coil bucket. Don't know what the largest size available is though.

Oh whoops I just saw that 3" body part lol. The only other option other than maxing out your t-bars is torsion keys which I would highly advise against.

Yeah the higher you go the rougher the ride will be. You can probably get 1-2 more inches if they aren't cranked now. Yes it is only for the front.
