I got those poly spacers from fat bobs, and they've worked out pretty good for me but after a couple of years they will probably sag but by then I'll have enough for spindles. get the spacers then put spindles later to get an even bigger lift but don't do the coils yourself I almost broke my face doin that shit but if you have money just go straight to spindles

it's not a hard job, just disconnecting everything, just a dangerous one.

Yes, be extremely careful, luckily when i did my spindles, i didnt lover the lower control arm too much and have to deal with the spring. I may replace mine this summer, try to take away some of the body roll

Definitely get spindles, I put coil spacers on my 03 last night and it was a nightmare. Get a shop to put them on.

you guys know to support the lower arm with a jack so you disconnect everything then slowly lower the jack, right? that way the spring won't fly out and kill you.
