I Dont Know If I Can Handle This Anymore!

Ok so I got my 3'' spindle lift from fabtech today. Iv been waiting 3 months for these after I have gottin the wrong part one time and then put on back order. So I just took them out of the box totake a look at them and I read the instructions. The title says for a 2000-2001 2wd edge 3.5'' lift. So will this fit on my 2wd 06 sport? the pictures look about the same.

K good. but why is a 3.5 and not a 3? Will that cause some probs? But is the 3.5 worked that would be awsome.

Having the RCD kit, seeing it every day and not having it installed.

I've had both and the Fabtech are much nicer. Plus they lift higher -- I had to lower my t-bars after I put the Fabtechs on.

For those who wondered why I changed -- I broke a set of Doetsch. It wasn't necessarily their fault. I inadvertently jumped my truck a lot higher than I intended -- made for nice video though...

So even though fabtech says 3'' they are actually 3.5''???

I don't really mind the doetesch ones, but I'd love to upgrade to the fabtechs one day so I can get more lift and push the front wheels out more. Then I can get spacers for the back too
