If you read my last post you'll see I tried helping you out. What are you going with?

After reading the first thread on here it helped me a lot but also left me with a couple questions. Anybody that could help I would appreciate it.
1. Do these lift options also pertain to a 2002 mazda b3000 DS 2WD?
2. How much harder/easier is the spindle lift compared to a body lift?
3. If I do a spindle lift in the front would that call for me to put lift blocks in the rear to level the truck?
Thank you

Yes, spindle or body lift will work. Spindle lift is easy, I can't comment on a body lift. Yes, if you spindle lift the front you will want either lift blocks, an aal, or shackles.

thank you for the help. I'll look at different spindle lifts and see which I want. Any recommendations on spindles?

alright cool thank you for the help. With spindle and shackles do I have to extend any lines of gas cap? Also does this effect my shifter

No, coil spring front, vs. Torsion bar front suspension
