Spindles

Ok so i have been saving and planning for a few weeks now. I had a originalplan of going to a local offroad shop here in san antonio and getting a 3'' spindle and soem 33's. it was ofcourse gonna cost me a lil bit but now i got a new offer. one of my good friends is the ex-owner of Southland Offroad and is saying that if i buy the lift he will install it for $175 and a case.
So my question is, what 3" or bigger spindle lift is good for price and quality. I dont want it to cost too much and i want everything needed to come with it. none of that, if your 2000-03 u ned part#7483924724 to complete the kit and part#09048324 to complete it if you have a 03-06. I have a 06 sport and just wnat the complete kit with everything so i can hand it to my friend and he can put it on. any help or suggestions would help alot.
thanx

I would go with the fabtech 3'' spindles because they have a good reputation. The hit will cost you about 500 bucks.

On the sport truck kit it shows blocks, are they intending for you to stack blocks or use a 2 inch taller block for the added lift, if so wouldnt that cause severe axle wrap under hard acceleration or braking.

From what a see yes they are. But severe axle warp i dunno. If you bought the lift just dont use the blocks and get some shackles or a aal.

if its a 2wd EDGE...the only thing it can really be is a spindle lift with t bar crank
you can only get the 3"/2" since you have no coils

oh im going to guess 33s on that truck, but you can email them and ask, they are cool there.

if i were you i would just buy the spindles from them, and get the AAL and shackle since you already have a block
