spindle package or not

ok im looking at a few different spindle lift options and i have found one that comes in a package for 692.00 from 4wheelparts (im not gonna buy it from them just useing these products as examples)
http://www.4wheelparts.com/4wp/produ...AB&expand=sub3

or the one that has just the spindles for 375.00
http://www.4wheelparts.com/4wp/produ...AB&expand=sub8

the package includes the spindles aal, camber adjuster and shocks and the other is just the spindles... im not sure which is the best option... any feedback from folks who have bought either is welcome

just buy the spindles from suspension max on ebay. they are the doetsch tech spindles.. a lot of guys are now running them including myself. they have great customer service at susp max. they sell them with blocks but if you have an edge you dont want additional blocks so get their chevy drop shackles to lift the rear. then get some AALs from summit for like $40 or $50 (forget what price was). But overall it might cost $400-$500. then get them installed and aligned. i didnt need the camber adjuster. and i already had rancho RSX shocks.

those prices arnt bad at all compaired to 4wd lifts. But if you looking to save money, buy them seperatly like i just did (well used). This way it gives me time to save for shocks, rims and tires instead of droping a big load of cash all at once.

RWD is definitely cheaper to lift than 4x4... especially IFS 4x4s.

In the front=no

In the rear...depens on what you do.

I would highly reccomend add a leaf and a chev shackle, and in this case there is an aftermarket (4" lift) shock from summit racing that is perfect.

I have yet to invest in the shock or put on the add a leafs yet

so your rear is still at stock height or have you installed the shackels yet?
