    have you installed the tires and wheels yet? Pics. The only thing I see out there for a lift is a small 1.5" front spring spacer. I'm hearing anything larger would cause havoc with the alignment. I just pick up some 235 x 70r 15" for my 99 single cab 5 lug. on order is a spring spacer. Some one must have another taller solution. I would sure be nice if we could bolt up a 4x4 strut and spring and gain a few more inches of travel.

    thats a 31" tire. to clear that you need a minimum of a 3 inch lift. spindles would be your best bet. lift these trucks via coil they will break. good luck

    Joel- thanks for the info, nice build up. Yeah, our 99 five lug is a father son project. once the $'s show up i'll pick up some spindles, looks like we will need at least 400 for the spindles. Right? then shocks, any other costly items? Just an add a leaf in the right?

    If you're interested, I may be able to track down some old lift coils from Fabtech for you and get them shipped at a fair price.

    I'm all ears, would these coils work with our 99 5 lug? I'm in Cali too so shipping shouldn't be to bad. Thanks Much.
