    If you can find someone who makes 4 inch spindles for a 1st gen let me know! I know Camburg does but they will only sell them too you if you buy their $5k race kit and i dont know anyone else who makes them i really want some. They said that people dont make any for the 1st gens because you have the press the rotters on to the spindle... :(

    Engage Offroad long travel front and rear with some fat tires.
    even with a lift spindle, on stock upper and lower arms, it won't ride worth the money you are spending...

    when you decide to do the truck right and go long travel, you won't get your money's worth trying to sell the spindles...

    if in that big a rush to go big and fast, just bust out the credit card and do it right from the start...

    ur gonna drop $1,000 on coilovers, $900 for lift spindles, $600 for UCAs...

    for $1,000 more u could have LT

    doesnt quite work like that...

    the geometry of the stock front end only allows for a certain number of inches between the UCA and the LCA...

    with up travel and down travel of the shock, you can't get past those numbers...

    throwing a coil assembly in there longer than 3" of lift will destroy your lower ball joints and eliminate down travel as the lift itself will max out the distance between the arms...

    with the shock assembly pushing them apart it will be too stiff for any up travel and your lower back and kidneys will be hating you...
