    where the heck can i buy the camburg spindle from? im trying to order but im having no luck plus i heard a site gives us a discount on them :D

    and this is what im going to have done once the parts get here....

    -Spindles and a 1 inch spacer from a 4 runner(i think they fit) and extended brake lines =5" front
    -2" AAL and 2" block in back to level it out and extended brake lines( i think i need them) and the 5150 shocks= 4" rear
    -33" tires and 17" wheel that i havent decided exactly what i want yet

    what do u guys think?

    Get rid of the 1" spacer and the 2" block + AAL. Get a rear leaf pack.

    get the 5100's for the front and set them at .75" if you want the extra inch. much rather run those (which i do) over a spacer lift


    edit: better idea since your dropping the coin anyway do it right the first time. get yourself the spindles, a nice coilover, 5150's for the rear and a deaver or alcan leaf pack. :thumbsup: sittin pretty you will be

    Go with the 5100's up front and set them at first setting as stated above. Just look for a nice used pair.

    For the rear avoid a block. You can get a used 3" all pro leaf pack for like 300 or 350 on here sometimes.

    Well people tht run blocks and later ditch them realized they should have never bought them. Take Amir(sandman) for instance. He has the camburg spindles and was running blocks. He ditched them finally and got the 3" leaf pack. He loves it.

    I am planning on buying the spindles as well. In my opinion you should just put the spindles up front for now and later on down the line buy some coilovers if you want more lift. For the rear I already have the 3" leafs and I'm planning on setting my coilovers to 1" and then getting a custom rear shackle mount made that gives another inch of lift.

    Not that bad, just not that great either. A block promotes axle wrap (wheel hop on hard acceleration) so most steer from them.

    Toyota offers a technical service bulletin that will allow you to get a FREE ad a leaf. Lifts the rear of the truck about 1" and increases load capacity and prevents the rear from bottoming out and slamming bump stops. However the truck will ride like a rock and will not flex as easily. You gotta research this A LOT.

    Spindles are a great way to lift a truck, takes the load off the balljoints, free's up any preload on a coilover, if there was any to begin with and widens the track approximately 1/2". Not to mention they're strong as heck... only problem is, do you wanna spend $900 for a set?

    Cheap and safe formula for lifting: Bilstein 5100-set at whatever height you desire. TSB add a leaf from toyota + 5125 shocks in rear. 285 tires- Looks awesome.

    Well then just get the setup you said. If you don't like it and you realize that just maybe we have some knowledge....you can always change it out.
