The spacers wont fit with the lift springs. 3" lift springs were rather hard to get in the coil buckets.

And Camburg springs are the best.

And if you do get spindles your going to want to find a set of UCA's. Most likely Fagtech because it is a lot ****tier ride with lift springs, spindles and stock control arms. That is what I am running right now.

No Camburg sells just the springs. And they are better then Fagtech and Douchetech.

yeah it was a pain gettin my stock springs back in with the spacers. i want to go to about 8 inches of lift but spindles are the last option and idk where to get the bast deal on them.
a friend offered to build me a lift though........... debating on if thats a good idea or bad idea. he's a good welder so maybe good idea?

What is he going to build. I had one all planned out to be able to run 37's and 15" of lift. But it was a ton of work and wouldn't have been worth it.

well he believes he can extend a few things for more lift, i think he was saying he could do some of the same things a lift kit does. he built the lift on hes f250 so i mights just have to see what he can do.
hes building me a rear bumper and rock sliders so ill see his work there and go from that.

You can extend the lower control arms out and the uppers thus allowing the spindle to set down and give you more lift.

so would it be too hard to do that for about 3 inches of lift and would the camburg springs still be ok to use with that?

Have you checked them out? I'm not sure if you already made up your mind though.
