Spindle lift

Hey everyone,

Well I decided i need a lift and i am going to get this http://performancelifts.com/cgi-bin/cart/FTS41307.html

but i want to clarify some things,
i can buy the spindle lift for 389 for spindles only. but it is good to replace front shocks so i added a pair for 90 bucks. and then it says i should also do the rear, however i dont care i like the bro lean look, so i can skip out on it for now right?

so in total im going to get the 3'' SPINDLES , & FRONT END SHOCKS then i am good to go or am i missing something?

thank you all.

if you order just the rear shocks, your susp in the rear will not change. the truck will still have some bro lean to it.

seeing that your truck is a 97, it could prob use some new shocks on all 4 corners. if you got the extra $100 i'd get the rear shocks too

Definitely go with these spindles much stronger they are plated and not casted like fabtech.



Edit** they are also casted but they are still a better spindle than fabtech

yes, no matter what route you go you should replace all 4 shocks. just because they are probably all spent and have no life left in them

x2. You dont want to run a nice, new lift with shitty, worn shocks. And you definitely wouln't want to run just 2 new shocks.
