Lift Coils or Spindles?

I want about 4-5" more lift. Should I get 3" lift coils with coil spacers or Spindles and coils spacers for my stock Coils?

And what are my choices for UCA's after its lifted??

as far as upper control arms, I've "heard" that the DJM arms, when installed upside down (you would have to flip the ball joint) will improve the ball joint angle for a lifted truck.

Fabtech spindle lift gives u 3" of lift. Is u want to add coils ur gonna have to get uca's and if u don't ur gonna be maxed out and the stock uca's will be hitting ur chassi. If u want more lift do what I did, 3" spindle and 3" body and fit 35's with no rubbing!

yea any coil longet than 2 inches you will need diffrent uca's so your truck can be aligned...allong with adjustable camber bolts.
fabtech, doestch are some companies you should look for, since you already have a body lift, your truck will sit way high!
