    if you're 2wd..

    Camburg 4": $1000+ w/ brakelines..
    TC 3.5": $1200+..
    Maxtrac 4": $500-$650ish...I don't think someone has a definite answer for price, but i got these at a pretty good price.

    I don't think there's a 6" spindle lift...but you can achieve 6" or 7" with spacers, coilovers, or with 5100's...ride will differ depending on the setup...

    someone else will chime in and correct me if i'm wrong...

    Spindles don't come in 6". You can find 3" to 4" and they are anything but cheap.

    Cheapest spindles you can find will run you about $650.00 just for the spindles.

    You can add 5100's up front and set them to 2.5", along with 3.5" spindles to get 6". A 4" leaf pack for the rear, extended brake lines, and new rear shocks and you'll be set.


    You're looking at about 2K. That's if you do the install yourself.

    Sorry about that, Its a 2006 Prerunner. It started on ebay for less then $600.00 and read on here also for about the same price but this was a couple months ago and i just saved enough money to purchase but price went up. Was just wondering if that other site stayed at the same price or someone might know were i can get it for cheaper? I live in Guam and just trying to get the cheapest cause shipping here cost 2 arms and three legs!lol Also will the 4" clear 33s? Thanks Guys

    They redesigned the spindles you linked, and then they jacked up the price. Those are still the cheapest available, even with the price increase. A 2.5" lift would clear 33's, and be a lot cheaper. A lot lighter, also.

    You're looking for a good price. I would go with Bilstein 5100's (front and rear). Set the front at 2.5" and add a 1.5" AAL in the rear. You'll have a good lift, with a reasonable ride, for a reasonable price. Send a PM to Downsouth Motorsports. They are a vendor on here, and one of the very few companies that i will personally recommend.


    All of this will cost you less then the spindles would by themselves.

    yeah, you can keep your stock shocks...but it will only give you ...the 3.75-4inches. .whatever it is...if youre on a budget...you can get bilstein 5100 for around $160..iirc...alot of peeps running that..you can adjust them to .85, 1.75, 2.5 or 0...obviously harsher ride the higher you go..also harder to get aligned...i personally have the spindles at 5100 at 1.75 " ride is good...

    Nice, what you got in the back?
    Are 3" leafs (All-Pro, etc.) not enough for front? I'm thinking of doing same infront but @ 0 setting with Eibachs (so 1.6" lift).

    Why not just call dsm? Plus bro, you need to get extended shocks for the rear if you're going to put in a 2-3" lift in the back too. I got the 5150 shocks in the back with a tsb pack and 2" aal. Those shocks r 99 each.

    So if u get the front 5100 for 170 and the 5150 for 200, you're only looking at a 30 dollar difference n getting a bit better of a shock. Correct me if im wrong.

    Those prices are for two shocks. Go to Downsouth Motorsports. They have a discount code posted in the vendor section, here on TW.

    Hey bro, the 370 would b for the rear 5150 and the front 5100. I really like the feel of the rear with those 5150 shocks. Also make sure that you get your rear leaf pack or add a leaf sorted out first so you can determine what length of a shock you need.

    Oh and u need the 5150 stem to eye conversion kit. Its 20 bucks n super easy to switch. Dont let that trip u out. Those are way more worth than the 5100 for the price. I dont care wut others say. For the super insignificant price difference, it is worth it.
