Default Can i get this?

Ok so i have a 2003 Mazda B3000 Dual Sport. I really wanna lift it, but i dont want to do a body lift and spend a sh*t load of money..I was researching spindle lifts and if i understood it correctly all you have to do is replace these spindles with the stock ones and it will give you a 3" lift. Is that correct? and will this work for my truck?

If you are going that route you'll need bigger wheel/tire combinations to fill the gap.

Budget for that too!

Well ofcourse i would get bigger tires. I was actually planning on getting tires before the body lift so when i did the lift i could put on the new tires at the same time.

And i hope it is easy but im sure someone would lend a helping hand, hopefully someone whom had done this to their truck.

Oh and im automatic..so no worries about shifter extension...thank god.
