    So I'm leaning towards a spindle lift for my prerunner and my goal eventually is to get TC UCAs and fox c/o's. But because of the cost I might not be able to do it all at the same time along with the rear.

    So my question is does anyone have their spindle lift on stock front suspension? and I know it's not going to perform that well offroad but how does it ride on/off road?

    Eventually I'll have my whole set-up done but in the meantime Im curious..thanks guys

    plenty of people run spindles on otherwise stock components. The ride will be unchanged from stock. All the lift spindle does is move the wheel hub down further.

    Cool thanks..so it's looks and nothing else..because its going to be an extra $1600-1700 for the c/o's and uca's so I was thinking of waiting for a bit..hmm something to think about

    I just picked up a 12 tacoma prerunner and from what i'm reading spindles seem to be the way to lift.

    Three questions though: 1. if you lift 3.5-4" on the front what would you need to level out the rear?

    2. What about alignment on the stock UCAs. Won't caster still be off?

    3. What's max size tire/wheel for a 3.5-4" lift with stock suspension components?

    1. You would need to level it out if 4" in the front with stock rear isn't your cup of tea.
    2. No need for ucas, alignment will be easy to get in spec
    3. I've seen 33s all the way up to 35s with various amounts of trimming, grinding.

    1) What would you need to level out the rear? AAL? Leaf pack?

    All pro 3" pack would get you pretty level
