Spindle lift and aal

Hey,I made a thread in exterior mod forum about a body lift,well I read from a lot of people here that a spindle lift is the way to go.Where can I get some good spindles at a good price,and where can I get a good aal for a good price?I want to get a 3 in lift here,I already torsion cranked it up 2in.What else would I need,its a 2001 Ford Ranger Edge 2wd with a manual trans by the way.Could someone reccomend me a place to order these parts please,thanks

ebay has one for 300$, its off brand but its the same thing, it includes rear lift blocks so you can either do the AAL or the lift blocks...
other then that the stock shocks and coils will work with it so you wont need those... and i think thats about it, its not as involved as a body lift

ya Procomp spindles are the ticket for ya and just a word of the wise just AAL alone will not raise your rear up enough. best thing to look into is a rear Deaver leaf spring pack and also get longer rear shocks the spindles up front DO NOT require longer shocks.

I'd recommed buying from truckperformance.com. the fabtech kit comes with everything and they include their premium shocks, and the rear aal's for a total of $720 for the edge kit
