    I'm gonna be in the market for a lift come tax time and I figured I'd start doing some research now. Just want to see if there's any local shops you guys would recommend.

    Im looking into a spindle lift and not sure what route to go in the rear, should I go blocks, aal or new springs?

    I would go max trac for the spindles. Unless you have enough coin go cambrug. For shocks I wold go 5100 that are adjustable. Unless you have coin go with either fox or kings. For the back I would go with all pro leaf pack and some fox or kings. Maybe go with camburg or to uca's.

    I can help you with the install if interested for wee fee. I have done plenty of install including 7 max tracs spindle lift in last year or so.

    I'll definitely keep you in mind for the install, also is it necessary to replace the front shocks?

    I stopped by a shop on my way home from work today, Suspension Specialists in Anaheim. They quoted me just under $800 to install Maxtrac spindles up front and 2" blocks in the rear. I've read on here that alot people recommend staying away from blocks

    Not totally necessary to get new front shocks but you might get better ride with better shocks. As far as blocks yes I would stay clear of them either get leaf pack or aal.
