Spindle's question

Ok not as tough as it might sound. I'm completely re-doing my suspension and am dropping the fab-crap lift that is currently on it. Now back when I purchased this one I was looking at a Procomp set of spindles, however now procomps website is showing nothing as far as a spindle lift for my 01 EDGE. I refuse to go back to Fabtech and was wondering if anyone knows why Procomp's website doesn't show a lift. Did they discontinue it or whats going on?

Ehhh don't like the wider front spread and to be honest I didn't abuse it too much, however it could have been abused before I got it since I did purchase it used. Either which way I'm just leaning towards a different route on it.

ok i gotcha... doetsch/suspension max uses the same mold the procomps used and they dont stick out as far but they are only 3 inch instead of the 3.5 fabtech... www.suspensionmax.com has them

*sigh* well I was looking at getting a complete kit and it looks like Fabtech is the only one with a complete new kit. I guess I'll be going back to them. I'm also going to change my rim size too. I'm going to drop from a 15x12 to a 15x10 in hopes that is will take some of the strain off the front end.

To respond to the pro-comp kit for sale. I've already purchased one used kit and am not looking into getting another one. Although I appreciate the offer. And WOW those are some huge shackles do you think RCD will sell them seperately?

Also does anyone have a part number or dealer for the chevy shackles if that is the route I have to go. I'm thinking that with the factory block, the AAl from Fabtech and the shackle I should be about even on lift correct?
