    Rust, lots of rust
    An add a leaf takes about as much effort to install as a whole new leaf pack. im going to say just go with a new leaf pack if your going with spindles up front. spindle lift can be done in your diveway with hand tools, my dad and i did mine in a day. only tool i i bought was a ball joint seperator (dont judge my spelling on that one), but it can be done without one, i just went ahead and bought one cuz it was cheap.

    Ill get back to you tomorrow about this as i need to get some sleep, its 5am here:D. Feel free to pm me any questions or specifics you want to know, ive helped a few guys out on this site get there stuff together for spindle lifts. I am more than happy to help you figure it all out.

    P.S. THANK YOU for your service
