Can't decide lift ome or spindles?

Hi everyone, I am having a hard time deciding how to lift the front of my prerunner. I am deciding between ome 885 springs, shocks, and the top spacer to get the full 3". Or the maxtrac spindles and leave everything else stock.

After the research it seems spindles are the way to go, however all the pics I see on here seems it makes the front wheels stick out a lot, I'm not sure about that, it looks funny in some pictures to me.

Or should I stick to the ome lift which don't change the amount the wheel sticks out, but it seems it throws off the front geometry.

Any help or input to help me decide would be great.
I have a double cab long bed, I already purchases the wheels and tires just need to now figure out the lift.

Btw I bought 18x9 helo maxx wheels 4.53 bs -12mm off, and 285/65/18 nitto trail grappler tires

spindles, you hardly notice the front wheel sticking out unless you actually look for it.

That is the reason I didn't go with spindles is having the front wheels sticking out then having to put spacers on the back wheels to even things out. But you'll be happer with the 4" of lift from the spindles and you will also maintain the factory ride and tie rod angles.

pics

ok so i mounted the wheels on my truck, i am seriously leaning towards the ome 885, i think if i were to go with the spindles which will kick the wheels out another 3/4" it would be too much, what do you all think?

OP, what did you end up going with? I am looking into the same things myself and any feedback you may have would be cool

I actually ended up the the maxtrac spindles and an aal for now.
I still want to get the front a little higher probably going to get some billies and set them to .85 to get rid of the rubbing. And maybe add a 1.5 bock in the rear or just get a whole new pack.

I'll post some pics up when I get a chance
