    Well my b day is coming up and im about to sell my old dirt bike so im going to have some more money to blow on the taco!...thinking about getting some spindles to give it about 5'' in the front and wanted to get about 3-4 in rear. I was looking at bilsteins 5100s but they are only for 2.5'' of lift. Is there like a shock extender or anything you could get? not wanting to spend over 200

    Last question. How can i tell which ones i need? I guess i need to figure out the length of stock shocks and then add the amount of inches of lift to that?

    When you talk to dsms they will tell you to cycle your rear suspension. You might pm doug (4wd) and ask him what he is running. He has 3-4" of lift in the rear on his...
