My truck goes through suspension cycles...almost ready for the next phase

So my truck has had the following suspension/tire phases...
  1. stock
  2. stock suspension with 32's
  3. 32's and fabtech spindles
  4. 33's and fabtech spindles
  5. 33's and camburg 6.0 dual shock
  6. 33's and fabtech spindle
  7. 31's and stock height

Well... I got tired of being stock (obviously) and just picked up some spindles last night... be on the lookout for my truck to grow a few inches in the next few weeks

Money and the fact that I was breaking things. I was destroying tie rods, both inner and outer, changing ball joints every 2 months, bearings were getting expensive...I could go on.

I was building my truck up to be a prerunner....yes, an actual prerunner not just a "prerunner" but realized that I am never going to cage it or put that amount of money into it.... so it went back to spindles and then stock height when I didnt have the money for new 33's.
