    Ok i dont know much about lifts but i did some research and i think im ready to ask my questions. so I'm thinking about getting a 4" max trac spindle lift on my prerunner and was wondering will I have to buy any additional parts for the front or will I just be fine buying the $500 spindles and be done with the front? And also if I do the aal for the rear will it lift it enough to make it even or do I hav to buy shocks or put a block for the rear or somethin. I'm fine with the front being a little higher too. Thanks

    You are all good to go when you buy the spindles (I have the spindles). An AAL will still have some bro lean, but its not terrible. Im sure adding a block would put you level.

    You can kind of tell right here, that there was a slight lean with the AAL.

    And that's only adding one leaf? And using your existing u bolts? I'm just trying to figure everything out and general pricing, u spent like $90 for one leaf in the rear? Not counting installation And thats it? Also wat size tire do most people go with after spindle lift? will i need wheel spacers too for aftermarket rims? Thank you!!!!sorry about all the questions, those are my last ones I promise ha

    Usually people do a 33" or 32". I Currently have 31" (pussy shit). I got my AAL for free from a very generous member and he even helped me with the install. Yes we used stock u-bolts and had absolutely no problem. Hopefully I answered about everything. Feel free to ask everything you need!

    I think if you go with the spindles and a 2 inch AAL it would put you pretty close to level maybe a touch nose high. You do not need to buy anything else for the front the stock shocks and springs will be fine if you want to save the money.
    If you check out my build thread you can see my truck with 5100's at 1.75 and stock leaf springs. Next would be my Maxtrac spindle lift with the 5100's set at .85 and Dakar leafs in the rear. There are pics of it with 265/70/16's and 285/75/16 tires on also.

    You won't need them with the additional 1.6" lift from the eibachs.

    Wondering u could help a former member out ! I have 2nd gen 06 prerunner I just ordered my 4 inch maxtrac spindle. Gonna run the eibachs and billy 5100 also. My question is will my spindle fit with my 285/75/16 on 16x8 rims. Have no knowledge when it comes to offset but the website I ordered my rims from says my rims have a backspacing of 4 inches and offset -12 mm bore diameter is 4.25 ? Would greatly appreciate the help!
