Camburgs edge kit is still only a 3.5" lift spindle. The other 2" is factored in because they want you to crank your torsion bars.

It could be something brand new in the stages of development and testing. I do believe that. But how could we get 5" off a spindle alone...it would be lower than the LCA? Drop brackets?

Thats right. The spindle snout would have to come out where the LCA attaches to the balljoint or possibly lower. Its just not conceivable without some sort of extended spindle and dropped crossmembers.

rrrrrr Wrong....

i am talking about a solid 5.5inches of lift from SPINDLES no torsion bar crank


and what your looking at is for a coil sprung ranger A.K.A XLT
the fabtech Ultimte lift is a completely differnt suspension lift..
and they havent even came out with the 5.5 SPINDLE lift for the coil sprung ranger yet so lets drop that subject and stick with what actualy exists ATM

thier is a 5.5 SPINDLE LIFT for 2wd EDGE rangers Torsion Bar Suspension
thier is no torsion bar crank needed for this lift you gain 5.5in of lift just from the spindles alone is my point and this is were i stand stop complaining saying im wrong ect.. just call fabtech and ask them yourself if your still in concern of disbelief

If it really does exist.....then we certainly would have heard about it before you came along(nothing against you at all). You are in Kentucky, and Fabtech is based out of Southern California...why would the Southern California based company be testing product in Kentucky???? Doesn't make sence.

I still want proof. It's phisically and strengthally(is that a word)....anyway, it's impossible to simply drop the hub down 5.5" to create 5.5" lift. There's ALOT more that needs done. imo, if drop bracketry is needed and new alot taller knuckles are needed, a spindle lift that creates 5.5" of lift defeats the purpose of getting a spindle lift in the first place. Who wants a $1500 spindle lift???

Yessick take a look at this pic of Gatorblue's spindle. Its a fabtech 3.5" spindle, look closely at the location of the snout and tell me if you still think you can move that thing down another 2"........sorry its just not going to be possible with a spindle alone.

i understand im not trying to fight about it but i know that it is real their may be more to the lift that wess didnt point out all he showed me was the big *** 5.5in spindle and you could tell that joker wasnt no 3.5 ya thier might have been brackets of some type ect.. but like i said ill get pictures tomorrow so i can show yall and it is like a 1500$ lift to tell you the truth lol but i mean if someone wants that much lift then spend a peny or two more..

Getting hurt? Can not take the truth that your an idiot? I do need to go to bed thats for sure but your lift thing is just cracking me and how you "SWEAR TO GOD" about everything. Maybe if you type in "Swear To God" a few more times you may convince us.....
