Spindle lift questions?

Im new to this page so please take it easy on me. I have an 06 tacoma prerunner and have 2.25 ready lift leveling spacers which I regret every day, and I am heavily considering the Maxtrac 4 inch spindles. I have read alot of posts on here about spindles and different advice on each. I want to run 285 75 16s on factory rims with this lift, will this work without wheel spacers? I dont off road so it is just for looks and road travel. Will I need anything other than the spindles for the lift, such as after market coil springs, there is 70,000 miles on the truck and springs are factory. I also like a little bit of a "lean" on it so I was thinking just a 1 inch lift in the back, but I dont want blocks, any advice? Thanks

Well.. I have the 4 inch spindles and they are great. It doesnt affect the ride and makes it better, because you will be getting rid of the spacers up front. Im not sure about the wheels, but the spindles push the wheels out 3/4". You will have bro lean if you dont have anything in the rear. I would recommend an AAL, which was what I had and it had a slight bro lean. The spindles come with everything you need for the install including the extended brake lines. You dont have to worry about the stock shocks, since spindle have nothing to do with shocks. I no longer have the add a leaf and have a 3 inch leaf pack in the rear.

This is with my add a leaf. (this is the best picture I could find with the lean)

The beauty of spindles is that you won't need anything other than what maxtrac will send you. Aftermarket coils will help with the ride quality but you don't need them.
I know going bigger than like a 32" on first gens usually requires spacers or aftermarket rims so as to not rub the UCA.
Rear lift get an AAL they'll give you a little stiffer ride but added load capacity and will extend the life of the leaves a bit longer

thanks guys, if it pushes the front tires out 3/4 inch, does that look weird compared to the back tires or do most people put wheel spacers on the rear tires to match?

for it to fit without spacers is it 4.5 backspacing and smaller or 4.5 backspacing and bigger?

damn, even worse, if i do go with spindle lift, with that backspacing, would 1.25'' even be enough? or would it need to be 1.5''? thanks for your help bornwildguy!
