I dont think these are the right spindles but I am not sure. If not I need to send them back and get the right ones.

Well they are just as tall as the stock spindles. Does anyone have any pictures of their Doetsch tech spindles

the lift comes front where the actual spindle is located, not overall height. if it was taller youde need a lot more than just a new knuckle...

I think the knuckle comes down a little more which I guess would lift it but I am still not sure.

no the spindle drops in location causing the lift effect. the knuckle pretty much stays the same, minus manufacturer aesthetics obviously.

ok, maybe i'm missing something, but it sounds like your saying the spindle just drops down from the factory mounting position...if that were the case, couldn't you just drop the factory spindle down to this new location where the aftermarket spindle mounts???? please clarify this for me someone

Because you'd need to relocate the lower a-arm......
