they are fabtech coils and pro comp shocks. The ride is pretty stiff, im thinking that it could be that the geometry of my suspension is off, Im thinking maybe spindles would help?

I'm not familiar enough with 5 lug front suspensions, are they a coil over setup like the 6 lugs. I cant see a spring perch on those shocks.
Edit:

The springs are separate from the shock....
