31s on just a spindle lift wont look funny, itll look right. Youll actually be able to use your truck more since you wont be smashing your fenders with oversized tires.

Fabtech is better. But they are made by the same company.

best advice i can give you is to take your stock spindles and the lift spindles to a machine shop (if you or a buddy don't have a 20 ton press), and have them remove the snouts from your stock spindles and press them into the new spindles.

Dont knock a product you have never used. Ive messed around with alllll different manufacturers of suspension and Fabtech are quality. Im not saying doetsch is bad. Just giving what my experience has told me. And what I prefer.

you don't need personal experience with a product to see pics of them broken.
