Yay or Nay on the setup? Anyones Opinion will help.

Alright ive been on this site for awhile now and im lovin it...ya'll have been a great help..
Im wanting to lift my truck as youi might already know... and i jus wanted to double check to make sure im not missing anything or is there anything i would need to purchase extra for the intallation process to go smoothly. heres the list....

1st- 3" Fabtech Spindles ( i dunno where ima get theses from yet)..AAL's (from summitracing.com)...Chevy Lowering Shackles. (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2-LOW...spagenameZWDVW)

2nd- BodyLift ( really im not to fond of body lifts but i want that extra lil bit to fit my tires)

so my question is...will all this go together and work properly?? And is it a nice setup? Yay or Nay?

Oh yea and my fiance bought me my tire and wheel setup for x-mas.. 15x10 Pro Comp Extreme Alloys Series 8069. An wrapped with 35x12.5x15 BF Goodrich MT.

-Mark

If you're doing 35" tires, then I would get the superlift and leave it be. The suspension lift is a very solid setup for a truck. You could fit the tires with that alone and have minimal rubbing. What kind of riding are you thinking about doing?

You can't use the Superlift anyway, its only for 4x4s.

with a 3.5" spindle lift and a 3" body lift, you will be able to run 35's with no problem.

when my dad (04 EDGE) had spindle lift he just had an AAL with no shackles, so you shouldn't need the shackles.

They actually won't look that stuffed. Now 37s would look pretty stuffed, but even that isn't too too bad. Everything you have listed up there will work perfectly, theres many members on this site that have done that set-up and its working great for them. Hopefully I'll be running the same thing by the end of this year.

when you select on your axle size your gear ration will be 456 and pick motive gears or motive performance gears for manufacture and what ever install kit you have and your set to go

Defn post up pics. To find out what axle you have, look on the sticker on the inside of door and find the Axle Code. Go on here and then look up which one it is, I'll find the thread that lists them all.

what you listed will work and look great... you can even get away without the bodylift if you don't mind a little rubbing
