Default Getting a spindle lift, question about tranny

ok so getting a lift soon, i wanted to make sure that it doesnt mess with my automatic transmission. Does it screw with your gearing or rear end? i see so many people get the lifts of course, but not everyone cares. I dont want to screw up my perfect transmission. it literally has no problems. Thanks in advance! btw it will have either blocks or add a leaf in the back idk yet

edit: Title should say SPINDLE, so no harassment please

It makes it a little tougher. What is your rear end? no homo.

its S...S....Spindle lift. the tire size changes ur gearing NOT the lift itself what size wil you be going up to? and as kyle said what is ur rear end gear? u can find it in drivetrain tech under axle codes

----------

3.73s are good up to like 31s then its suggested you upgrade to 4.10s or better
