Spindle Lift Questions

I have a coil sprung and looking at spindle lifts. What kind of backspacing do I need to avoid having to do spacers? Was a camber kit needed?

I'm looking at these. Any thoughts?

I ran the Cragers on mine and it said they wouldn't fit. I don't remember the backspacing but It was the Fabtech lift.

I have the Doetsch spindles and I got near perfected alignment in stock setup. Its just a little off. A camber/caster kit would make it perfect. No biggee though.

I run Eagle Alloy 058s which stick out a tad further than Cragers. I ran a Crager Soft 8 spare as well.

I messaged them a while back and they got back to me yesterday. Said the max backspacing is 4.5" and mine is only 3.625" so I'm good to go there.
