    Ok just wondering. Ive searched around an ive got a idea but it was a little confusing sifting through all the mid travel info an such. But im a 2wd 2003 prerunner. If I get some adjustable coilovers an set them say at 2" of lift an add a solo motorsports spindle. Will that set my front lift up to 5" since the spindles lift 3"?? Just needing some info on this since I'm fixing to start ordering my suspension set up.

    Yeah that's how it works. The spindles are awesome because they provide clearance without messing with the suspension. Adding Coilovers on top of a spindle lift isn't "stacking lifts" necessarily. Usually you hear to never stack lifts, which is true except for spindle lifts. I've also thought about doing this and have researched it quite a bit. Only thing holding me back is the $1400 price tag and I'm also debating to convert to 4wd.

    If you do go through with this please post pics! You don't see many 1st gens with spindle lifts that aren't long travel'd.

    ALL OF THEM!...Then some more.
    yea spindle lifts just lower the mounting point of your hub basically, thus..more lift. But they don't change your suspension travel at all. Putting in the coil overs on top would give you more lift.
