    Hey so I have a 6"DB lift but my spindles are tuff country 5" lift spindles. Do they make a spindle spacer that I could use to make it a 6" spindle? It would help my full droop not hit my pretty new icon 6" coil overs!

    Or has anyone had experience welding an extension on top if their spindle or a drop bracket on your upper control arm? Trying to make my 5" spindles work with my 6" lift :/

    Good luck with your 11" lift. Planning on 44s?

    Haha read the post... I'm not trying to stacking a 5" and 6", just make my 5" spindle an inch taller into a 6" spindle to fit my 6" lift better. The idiots at mt Logan off-road said it would work no problem, but its severely limiting my full droop! Wondering if anyone has had success with either an extension or cutting/welding a spindle.
