Finally getting spindles!

I am going to be getting some 3 inch Doetsch spindles from Suspension Max and had a few questions. They are listed for $309.95. Does that include new blocks and u-bolts, or is that spindles alone. Also if anyone has ordered from them, how long does it take to get them in. I know this question has probably been asked several times but I which one do you need longer shocks with, AAL and shackle or lift blocks. Sorry if this thread is redundant.

It took me about a week to get in.

Get AAL's and shackles...you might also want to get blocks if you crank your bars up and your suspension doesn't sag

I planned on AAL and everything at some point, but I was wondering if the blocks came with the kit. Depending on how much the AAL and shackles costs, I may have to wait till later. I need to replace my shocks and have needed to for some time, but I didn't want to replace them again if I needed longer ones in the rear depending on which route I took. I was kind of wanting to wait till I got the lift to get shocks being I'd rather not get them twice.

I've seen sometimes when companies show certain products, it's not always included. If you get the whole package it might cost more. I don't know if anyone that has bought these if the blocks came with it? Here's the link.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FORD-...temZ8070137984

i live 5mi from alabama on the panhandle. ^^ I saw those ones... that sounds like an alright deal. I'll have to talk to bob and kris and see if they could do just a spindle.

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure. I may have to run w/the blocks until I can get the other. I had to buy a pressure washer yesterday, so there went the extra cash.

If you get them off ebay, they sell for $309.95 plus $40 to ship. On sporttrucksuspension.com, they sell for $349.95. Free shipping out the door, huh!

Those are for coil-spring rangers, not edges.

Which ones! I don't want to get a surprise when I order mine next week when I get back in town! I can't wait to get them in and installed. It's going to be a long week.
