Cool spindles and coilovers..??

Wassup yall i wanted to get a little more height out of my front end and I've been made aware by a total chaos rep that i could get spindles from them that will raise the truck in the front and i could set the my coil-over to maybe 1.5" (4.5" total) i was wondering if this is a good idea..???

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Spindels are a good way to achive lift on a Prerunner.

Yep! Retain your factory suspension components so there isn't much else needed when upgrading the spindles

The spindels and CO will give ya more ground clearance than the RCD.

Get the Camburg ones... they bought Allied Spindles and now sell them for $950, best price you'll find around.

For sure I'll def look at the camburg ones and I didn't know that it would give you more ground clearance... Y is that??... What about the total chaos spindles..?? And is there a differnece between the two..?? Cuz I want to get a total chaos UCA and from what I am hearing that TC is a better UCA then camburg.... Does that go the same for spindles..??

they give more ground clearance because the RCD is a drop bracket lift, the bracket is what lowers your clearance

No problem pal. You could regear, but honestly you would be fine with your stock gears with just 33s. You will notice some difference because of the higher rotational mass, but nothing too drastic.

Yea... I was just woundering i kind of figured that.... Its cuz im trying to see what would be better on gas for the truck and me as well... Do you think a throttle body spacer would help... I know its good as far as fuel to air mixture but do you think it would help the gas millage..???

Well I have no personal experience with the TBS, however, I have heard from about 95% of those that do have it, it is better at being a paper weight than increasing engine performance/mpg.

camburg spindles are legit! I would only reccommend a drop bracket lift for a 4x4. So nay on the RCD, Procomp, and Fabtech.
