Help with Spindle setup

K so im wondering how this would look and handle?
Front:
billys set at .85"
4" spindles
stock coils

Back:
3" All-pro leaf pack
and maybe upgrade to billys in the rear

wheel and tires:
already have 16" xd hoss's on 285 xtreme mud

I really like the front to be a little higher. Anyone have this setup? or would know how that will sit? Any help will be much appreciated!

the bilstein 5100 has 4 settings: 0, .85, 1.75, and 2.5. I am sure you are talking about the .85 setting. Yes, it would look real good if you did the .85 with spindles and 3 inch leaf pack.
I used to have a similar setup on my old taco and it was nice looking. Though I did use 295/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers, so they were a little larger than your 285 setup.

I think that setup would look real nice. If you look in my build I have spindle lift with a coilover. It sits just a little higher up front like how your talking about.

sounds good on what you want to do, you will need to add the 5100's in the rear if you get that leaf pack, stock shocks are too short

Um....the 5100s are the same length as the stock bilsteins, so you won't gain any down travel. You are going to have to get a reservoir shock to gain travel.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Correct on the 5100's being the same thength as OEM, but you can get extended travle coilovers to get more travle.

With 3" lift, yes, you will have to get some longer shocks.

I just learned spindle lifts exist, and that they retain factory ride, i think, and thats about all I know. Anyone wanna point me in the right direction so I can do a little research. Thanks and bump!

call camburg and total chaos, make sure to tell them you have a 4 cyl, i don't think it matters but make sure, and yes you can get the spindle and it retains stock geometry.
