Going from coilovers to spindles?

Currently I have radflo coilovers set at 3" of lift with rear 2" add a leaf. I want to get spindles and set the coilovers to 0". I want the lift to be level or have a slightly higher rear end. What would be the best option for the rear? And is there anything else needed that I may not be aware of?

EDIT: I also should mention I currently have bilstein 5100 shocks in rear. Would I need longer shocks? If so, what shocks would be the best choice?

Thanks for the help

Sublime pretty much covered it. You'll need longer brake lines too.

What size of spindles are you looking to add (just wondering). I have the camburg spindles and icon coilovers set to 0 as well. In the rear i just did the ome dakars and nitrocharger shocks. It worked out great. I do have a small prerunner rake with the nose up a hair in the front but its not that noticeable.

I was looking at 4" camburg spindles with radflos at 0". Dont want any "bro lean" !! Would the allpro expo pack take care of that? If so what shocks would I need to take full advantage of the expos?

Thanks again guys!

Actually, now that I think about it. My whole reason for wanting spindles was to improve the ride and get better alignment. That being said, What spindles would you all suggest?

Check allpro's website. Their rear package is everything you want with springs, shocks, u-bolt flip kit, bump stops and extended brake line for $1000!

That's the only quality lift other than OME which was stated will give you the bro lean!

what about the walker Evans set up they have for 699? has anyone used those shocks? I don't do much off roading, just the deer woods.

Keep in mind that the All-pro expo leafs are much stiffer than the All-pro standard pack which is already stiff. If you are going to be hauling lots of weight in the bed all the time, then I would say get they expos, if not get the standard pack.

I do think I will end up getting these, but dont have the cash right now. Even at 500 for the set its a steal!

ALCAN can do custom springs for ya... but you'll need longer shocks... look at the 5125/5150s
