I'm now interested to see what you guys come up with on this whole spindle issue...lol..

Well....I prefer suspension lift before bodylifts....so if I were to do it, it'd do the 3.5" spindle lift. And for the rear id run an AAL and 2" chevy drop shackle. OR.....w/ cranked bars and a rear AAL, it'd sit a little rear low, and i'd run 33's. But that's just me.

RF drama.....gotta love it.

so you guys are saying I should run (the 5" spindle lift w/ 35" or 36" tires and fuel it with a mixture of BS and Hopes + Dreams.)

how is 35"s gonna affect gas mileage? Is it easy to do the spindle and add a leaf swap your self or does it require special tools?

I think most of this thread is in regards to a member claiming Fabtech having a 5.5" all spindle lift. I personally hate fabtech, heard some pretty crappy things about them off road....

I've seen probably 10 different pics of different trucks running fabtech ****, and broken spindles.

I have broken a spindle...luckily was only going 35 when it happened. About ready to get on my daily 70mph run on the highway. On my chevy.

I don't even know why you quoted me mark. lol.
