    I just installed my lift spindles and i've got the J66 Deavers pack and i'm bro'in right now. I want my truck at a minimum level but possibly with the slight rake in the back. I'm thinking about the All Pro Expo back but that's only 3" so that should make me sit level ish. What are my other options and what have others done with spindles?

    Thanks
    Shane

    The only way you'll be level with the standard 3" pack is with spindles up front with stock shocks, or your coilovers set for zero lift, or your Bilsteins set at zero. Anything additional and you'll have bro lean.

    I have Maxtrac spindles with Bilsteins set at .85" and an Expo Pack in the rear and I'm absolutely level front to back.

    Yeah I've got Dr Coilovers and they are set real low but not zero... so looks like the expo pack it is... how do you like the ride? Are the really stiff? I've got the Deavers J66 pack right now and they're really soft!

    Ride seems fine to me, I've never had any complaints, and more importantly, they seem to have the "wife's approval" so I guess they can't be all that bad. They're not as soft as stock, then again I'm not bottoming out on speed bumps anymore which is good. Around town they seem perfectly fine to me, no complaints.

    I've got the Expos and they are a little stiff but not too bad. I've got Camburg spindles up front with 5100s set at .85 and still have about an inch of rake!!
