    So Im looking to lift my prerunner, I want to do spacers since I dont offroad (occasional dirt road to get to spots to ride) its more for looks and I will probablly never be able to afford the full out suspension lift, do I need to purchase new shocks as well with the readylift kit to be safe or will my factories be ok? Also how tall should I go they have 2 options, new to this whole lift thing. I know there's also alot of mixed feelings in regards to the spacers and wear and tear, are they really that bad? Thanks, Zach

    Hearing more and more negative things about the spacers, might just save up for the spindles, hate to damage my truck just to save some money.

    Spindles are THE way to lift a prerunner! Thinking about selling my lift and getting the 4" burgs

    I'm guessing you talked to stuntmanhans? And glad you like the spindles... wish they made them for 4wd!

    Pogliboy-What all do I need for spindle lift? Parts wise. Maybe I can start bit by bit. Thanks again everyone for the input.
