RCD install on pulse vacuum hubs

Ok i have a 1999 mazda B3000 4x4. Im looking for a lift kit for it and i want the RCD lift but it says it wont work with the pulse vacuum hubs and thats what i have. I was wondering if there is any way to make this lift fit or do i have to go with a diffrent lift. Thanks.

you will have to change out alot of things, your hubs, front cv axles ... i dont even know if the spindles are the same or not .... your probably going to have to go with another lift like superlift.

Yup, all you need to do is have a hole milled for the vacume line..

What if your truck is like mine with modified PVH hubs and you don't need a vacuum line? I modified my hubs by removing that metal tab essentially converting mine to live-axle.

id assume if the only difference is the vacuum line and then if you no longer need it cuase of your fix then it should work

Are the hubs themselves larger? Will the new spindle be compatible with my old style hub? What about CV width?
