I think the reason that people want you to do a spindle lift instead of a camburg lift is simple. Your going to be getting spindles anyway with the camburg kit. Plus, That kit was designed for the desert. I have a hard time realizing how somone is going to put it to it's real use in the bauyou. Unless you want a show truck.

I want the coolest and biggest pocket protector out there, I'm not a nerd, I just want it cause I don't care about money, he who dies with the most toys wins... waaa waaa waaa

$$$ won't always be your friend, save up for something USEFUL, that's like a guy building a mudding truck that lives on the beach on Cali.... no effin point whatsoever and it will NEVER get put to use....

that's just common sense.

can I also ask how YOUNG you are?

That's me unfortunately... I spend it as soon as I get it!! I do save for some things, like tuition and boosk, so I'm learning.

Is there any other suspension lift that can get me 6" without doing *** loads of custom work??

Wow, this thread has turned into a suspension thread...

You could use those rims, but they won't stick out at all. So, they won't go too well with a lift.

What do you mean, they won't stick out? Is the backspacing wrong? could I use wheel spacers to fix that?

ok im not trying to be mean... but your confusing me.

you want the camburg lift cause its good im not gonna argue with that... but....

you want those wheels which dont look to strong and since the backspacing is over an inch off.. you want to run spacers. ? so buy strong, but make it weak?

for a 15x10 you need like 3-5/16 backspacing somewhere close.
with that wheel you are looking at a wide tire with it shoved way in. i think you will be rubbing the frame bad... and maybe even the spindle



look i think you will be rubbin plus i think they get that 3 other 3 inches cause you cranked the torsion bars all the way
Quote:
The Edge Performance off-road system will yield up to 10" of wheel travel and up to a 6" lift. The spindles will add 3.5" of lift and the torsion bar crank will stiffen spring rate as well as add up to 2.5" of additional lift for ground clearance.

Alright back to the topic at hand.

I dont recommend those rims. The backspacing is not right for slapping big tires on and you really don't want to use spacers to push the rim out.

As per the suspension topic, I would not go with the camburg suspension, you don't need it. You will probably never, ever use it to its full potential or even part of it. Just get a set of spindles and AAL and you will do good and save well over a grand or two on parts.

what i dont get is why you guys are so worried about him getting this camburg lift. I wouldnt go straight for the camburg but we all have have ambitions to have a badass truck. If he can afford it then ****, let him do it.

who knows, maybe he will someday use it to its full potential. none of knw that so lets just be happy if hes happy. if it gets dangerous, then we'll jump in, but i see no problem.

um... Lets see. ugh... Nevermind. I'm not even gonna argue why a desert suspension would be put on a bayou truck.
It's your truck, Have fun. Good luck finding somone in your area to repair the kit when things start to rust.

bayou's arent that common here in Florida Cass. we arent louisiana

Channing are you looking to get lift or travel out of your suspension. if you want lift I'd agree on the spindles and get a set of Deaver leaves for the rear.

to just reiterate gildo and zach, spacers are not a good idea unless its gonna be a street queen, and the same with chrome rims. but if thats what you want for the truck I think it would make a really nice looking queen, but your gonna catch a lotta **** about your setup so just be prepared.

spacers are just bad all around.
what would look real good is a set of 17 or 18s with more sizes and with some muds...

I work pretty god damn hard for the money i make.

Hey man do what you want...it's your money. you can't help that there are haters that automatically assume mommy and daddy buys stuff for you when they themselves can't afford it. hell my mom bought my truck for me and everything else i pay for: it's called family financial support. If your family has it (the money) and they want to use it then go right ahead. You don't need to justify your worth to anyone that equates hard work with buying gifts, which by the way are just as material. my parents dont need gifts to know their money has done all of us well.

remember, there will always be haters that wish they could but they never will. I work hard for my money too and i spend just as quick as i get it but it's mine and no one will tell me different.

I agree with ryan though if you're gonna build the ultimate off-roading machine then get rims that are for that purpose. i can attest to you that with my chrome rims at 300 a pop they don't see ANY off-roading. When you even knick those suckers it hurts from within.

the back spacing is all wrong for your application.
they have a 6in backspacing that would they kind of backspacing i would need so i could tuck them but being lifted you need at least the stock b/s which is right around 4in. if you get a 15x10 with 4in b/s that puts 6in outside way to much. first you front end is gonna hate it with parts wearing way faster than they should. second most offroaders will tel you not to go over an 8in wheel unless ou tires are fuggin huge.
the 8in wheel with say 12.50 tire will give you just enough width to get the tire and it will make it bubble out some giving you extra protection for the bead and the wheel.
with that being i said i like the wheels but theyre not right for application. and for gods sake dont put rockcrawlers on there. everybody has them!!
you sound like you are wanting to do something different using those wheels well wanting to be different is a good thing. depending on use i would maybe get a set of 18s on there wiht a 33 or 35 dependng on how high your lift is.
and personally about the lift i guess it depends on how ya use it. if its gonna be apvement pounder likem ine was then dont spend a **** load on the lift. if its just for looks spend just enough to get it at the height you want not 2000 for stuff you would never use but thats up tp you man

sorry for the book

my garmmar may not be the best, but a 15x10 will cause wheel bearing wear and sometimes other suspension components will wear as well. I know it was a major problem when modifying the older Rangers, and it may not be such a big deal on a newer one, but a 15x10 is a 15x10.
