    No worries

    Yes I did, Jeff from camburg called me more than a month ago saying: "Your spindles are here, my installer was out for the last one week, I'll call you tomorrow to set an appointment for the installation"

    As of today, he hasn't called. LOL I didn't called him or made a big deal out of it because I got so damn busy at work and ended up not having time to deal with it.

    From what I understand Spindles with long travel CO's not preloaded appear to be the best option for PreRunners, kinda pricey though. So I'm going Maxtrac Spindles with stock TRD set up and 3" leaf pack in back till I can afford to eventually switch out the TDR gear up front, still getting my precious lift...

    Thats the beauty of a spindle lift, it works on stock suspension. The down fall of a spindle lift is that it is only good for 2 wheel drive. Its a great option for Tacoma PreRunners. You get 4" of lift with the same handling suspension as stock, thats a good thing!!! Your stock suspension has a lot of money and time put into the design of it, you can go 100 miles an hour or do light off roading. Unless your looking to rock crawl, which a 2wheel drive vehicle cant do that well then spindles with an eventual coil over is a no brainer.
    Just my opinion though, plenty of info on here...
