ya you would, but you also need blocks for the block or AAL (aad a leaf)

spindles will only lift the front

i want to do the same just need the cash to do it

You will get some clearance. What size tire do you plan to run? Are you gonna stick with what you got?

Really the little clearance is not worth how much one cost. That is my opinion

You will clear 33s easily. For the rear though I would go with a shackle, so much easier to install.
