Front spindles and springs

Hello, I had a few questions.

1) Is this brand of 3" spindle lift equal to the fabtech brand? it looks exactly the same and its cheaper. Does anyone have them?

2) Can I just install these springs for more lift? or do I need more components?

I am getting a spindle lift for the front but I am thinking I might want an even higher front end. How can I get this? (no torsion bars)

thanks

Doetsch is the same as springtech. They've been compared several times. Go with the springtech's unless you want a warranty from Doetsch. I had the Doetsch ones and loved how the kits turned out. Depends on what you're willing to spend. You'll get more lift for the money with Springtech, but more name for the money with Doetsch. Up to you.

I would said in this order for bottom to best

Doetsch/Springtech
Fabtech
Camburg
DixonBros.

If you want bigger lift in the front go with spindles and coils.

He really doesn't have any other options.

Spindles
Coils
Coil spacer
Body lift
And dead axle SAS

Thank you all for your help.

haha so here is my game plan.

Next month or so = Buy 3"spindles (probably Fabtech)

Years from now after I get an amazing job = Buy Long travel kit

that DixonBro longtravel kit looks so sexy! haha (must have it!)

question, so Dixon is better than Camburg?

Not necessarily better... Just another option for LT.
