    So I had Bilstein 5100s and OME 885x's installed on my truck a few months back,(got about 2.5" of lift or so) I love the look but want a little more. Is it possible to put a spindle lift (Camburg or Maxtrac) on with my existing set up? Obviously I would bring the rear up too not trying to have the most intensely squatting truck ever.

    The spindles will get you 4 inches of lift and you dont need to preload the 5100's either IIRC

    to answer your question yes. Are you running stock rims too? if so you will need wheel spacers, 1.25"

    i've got 5100's at .85 and eibach 1.6"...plus maxtrac spindles...3.75"....not 885's...but very possible. if you're at 2.5" now...maxtrac will give you 3.75" more...camburg gives you a true 4" supposedly...

    CST 3.5" spindles, King 2.5 rr ,All Pro Expo's, Ext. Billy 5100's rear, Ext rear All Pro brake lines, LR UCA's, debadged, Cobra 29,2ft firestick, satoshi by jim, ARB front bumper, Smittybuilt xrc8 winch, wethatecs, bhlm also by jimbob, belgium malinois and German Shepherd in bed
    that will give ya bout 6.5 inches of lift in the front roughly. what are you using for the back? blocks? all pro expo leafs are real good for the back if you can sacrafice a little in the front....I have billies set at .85 w/stock coils and expos in the back sits almost level and rides great.

    Thanks guys. I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to run in the back to compensate, but now I have a starting place.

    Anyone else running anything different on the rear?
