    Anyone know if these will add any height on their own? Just wondering how integrating these into the FatBoBs kit minus the 8000 series shocks from fatbobs will work out? or if i should just go with an AAL, these Bilsteins and maybe a spacer on the front for now...(essentially a fatbobs kit but with better shocks/struts...not doing any offroading whatsoever so save the "dont do a spacer" talk lol...i have plenty of friends who run spacers who strictly drive street and they have been fine for years....and I have seen the CAMBURG write up on what happens with a spacer lift and it is obvious those were demolished under extreme conditions and with serious offroading, no way metal gets scrapped like that without beating the fu*k out of your truck:rolleyes: haha.....saving up for a TC control arms/FOX-SAW 2.5" coilovers with TRD shocks and the FatBobs Longer AAL in rear :D...so im going to go the right route just not yet lol let me know what you think!??

    If I had a 4x2 I'd do a spindle lift and AAL.

    Cheers.

    They do not make a spindle lift for 2nd gen 5 lugs...only for 1st gens...that would have been my first option other than going with the TC LT kit and SAW coilovers...sure i could have a spindle lift fabricated but that would be just as expensive as going TC
