More lift

Hey, so i have o5 edge with 3.5 inch fabtach spindles and a 3 bbl. I was wondering if there is any other suspension kits out there to give me a little bit more just like 2 or 3 more inches. So if anyone knows of anything please let me now.

Not with the fabtech spindles and the edge suspension. All the other lift kits include spindles that are extended on the topside so they can use stock mounting location for upper control arms and their drop-down brackets on the lower control arms.

Why does everyone use 2 b's when they say BODY LIFT?

the only thing you can do is turn up your torsion bars or get new torsion keys

Yeah deavers only lift 2.5"

If you got spindles and tbar crank, that's 6" so my plan was deavers, aal, and add 1" to the blocks

AAL won't give you 2" with the deavers. They're already "arched". You'll only get another 1/2" or so.
