What tire size...

are you guys running with a 3 inch spindle lift? Sorry, im sure this question has been asked a million times. Im not big on body lifts at all, but I am going to do the Fabtech spindle lift first, then add the 2.5 inch spring lift later. Pics would be great as well.

This is my first post, and just wanted to say whats up to everyone. Thanks in advance

Thanks guys. Along with the suspension lift, I will be doing a 3" body lift. Im not too big on body lifts, but I want to clear 33's or 35's with no problem. I will be adding the Fabtech 2.5" a arm and spring lift later, and I dont want to buy two different tire sizes.

Who makes, in your opinion, the best quality body lift?

Hold on what truck do you have? The Fabtech 2.5 a arm and spring lift only works on coil sprung trucks. You will only fit 33s on a EDGE/Sport with a spindle lift.

For the body lift get a Performance Accessories, summitracing.com sells them.

I have a 2003 XLT. It does, of course, have coil springs. I want to add a 3" body lift to fit the 33's. What do you think?

Thanks for the info.

I really don't know much about lifting coil-sprung suspensions, sorry. You can stuff 32s with a 2" coil spacer, so with another 3" you should be able to fit 33s but I'm not going to guarantee that.
