that will not fit your edge the 5.5" kit is for coilspring trucks only there are 2 different 3" spindle lift kits one is for coilsprung trucks the other is for edge models

go all the way down on the left that is the correct spindle lift for your truck P/N FTS98300-7-kit

not saying to buy it from them just using it as a refference the 3 kits on the top are for coilsprung trucks
the one on the bottom is for edge models

don't edges have torsion bars instead of coils? If they do, then that kit wont fit your truck.

I think Doetsch also has a lift for t-bar trucks. But I think your real good options are Camburg or DBR...

Doetsch does indeed, but its made by spring tech, just like the fabtech ones haha. all 2wd spindle lifts are made by spring tech, they own the patent
