spindles attach your lower control arm to your upper control arm. They also can give lift to prerunners.

All I know of are 4 inch lift spindles.

Im not sure what you mean, but if you get spindles you do not need new UCAs

Lift spindles move your hub assembly from above where the lower control arm connects...to below where it connects. Giving you 4 inches of lift while keeping stock geometry..which means no need for new uca's

I think spindles look way cleaner. Your lower control arms wont be way extended and you'll still get 4 inches of lift. I'd say do spindles in front with 3 inches in the back... and then just get bilstein 5100s and play with those to get the look you want. It'll ride better then stock too and the shocks are cheap
