    Ok so when i was still planning on lifting my prerunner i ordered an all pro rear suspension kit with the 3 inch expedition springs. Now that i am going to a 4x4 (hopefully completing trade this weekend), spindles are no longer an option for the front. What would be the best option for a 4x4 that doesnt murder the cv angles but matches with these springs?

    This if you can swing it. Else, coilovers of some form with upper control arms and all the goodies.

    I have icon coilovers with my expos and it is a great all around setup. I'm extremely happy with it. My cv's have never given me a Problem

    OP: PM me your order info and I'll check on it since those springs are in stock.

    I'm running our EX springs with almost 200 lbs in the bed (35" spare w/rack & powertank), and I'm still sitting close to 3.5" of lift. It's pretty level with my front LT kit set at about 4".

    With standard 3" coilovers, you'll likely be at least 1" lower in the front when unloaded in the rear. Any good coilover won't allow your CVs to bind. You can also get our high angle boots to reduce wear as well.

    I think they will be required to keep my alignment correct with the lift
