    I found this lift on HeadStrong off-road. I plan on staying with the stock rims and tires 265-65-17 will i need to use spacers?
    Thanks.

    Yep, you can maybe do 1" bora or def spiders 1.25". Its the back spacing of your wheels, it will just put the inside lip of your rim/tire to close to spindle arm causing you to rub.

    Sweet package!

    I just installed the spiders 1.25 on my truck and it looks decent. You can a used set on here for quite a bit off retail. Good to have for piece of mind.

    Well it won't look great, bigger tire would, but it won't look bad either. Seen a couple trucks with the 265s and spindles and not bad at all.

    Little more tire is always a plus though, just leave the bilies set to zero and all should be fine. I hear those spindles lift you 3.75".

    Search around on here and check some photos out w/spindles and 265s, they are on here ;)

    Hi Op, did you ended up installing this kit? If so:
    How does the ride compares with the original ride?
    Any cons?
    Pictures?

    Thanks

    Spindles keep the ride stock unless you adjust the Bilstiens which reload the coils. The OME packs may be a bit stiffer in the rear in the beginning, but once you break them in they should ride better.

    I would love to photos of someone with the kit though.

    Nope, only if you plan to max the Bilies out. Still yet you could get away without new UCAs, you would just be pushing it with the alignment at the 2.5 setting.

    That’s the beauty of the spindles, you get the lift you need (3.75”-4.0”), can use the bilies as intended and replace stock shocks, keep your stock coils which ride nice and leave you UCAs alone and get spot on alignment when all said and done. You can also go a bit higher in the front if you want and spend nothing more thanks to the adj bilies. It’s a really complete kit that’s for sure.
