    Well, as the title states, I am a new owner to a 99 5 lug! Love the truck, and she makes a great daily. Howeverrrrrr, I am in dire need of some help. So my leaf springs were frowning on me. (as to be expected with 279,000 miles and counting) So I have been shopping everywhere to find some new replacements. Well, with no luck on finding replacements, I called a local spring shop. They told me that they have no parts available, BUT, they could re-arch my springs, for me. They said they might need to add a small leaf for structural integrity. Okay okay fine. Well, I go to pick them up, and they went with 2 AAL's. Well whatever, I installed the on the truck, and now the rear end is WAY higher than the front. So I am looking to buy the front lift spindles. Fabtech or Doetsch. Unfortunately, it appears as if they are constructed of unobtanium nowadays. I can't find them ANYWHERE. :confused: If any of you know where I might be able to find them for purchase, or maybe are even getting rid of your own, please help a guy out! Please and thank you! :D

    Thanks for the reply!
    It says they do, and I jumped on that immediately. But after they didn't ship for a few days, I gave them a call, and got emailed back that they actually don't have it. I also ordered it from fatbobs and haven't received tracking for a week now. I even got so desperate, that I ordered the entire fabtech kit off Amazon, as it said 5 left in stock. Still hasn't been shipped yet either. :(
