Arrow 3" spindle lift 2.3l

Im gonna be runnin 32" tires on my 2.3l 08. But when i get those done ima get a 3" spindle lift. But my truck sits all stink bug right now. Wheel to body the back is 7.5" and the front is 5.5". So a spindle lift would practically just even it out huh? I want my truck to sit cali style.

32" on a stock coilspring truck IS NOT going to work out too well at all... 30" MAX if stock. Lift it first, then tire it. lol. Most guys run 31's on a 3" bl or 3" spindle. If it were me, I'd spindle it and shackle it for a slight front rake. 32's would be a little too much stuff if the rear is left stock.

i know 32s wont fit on it stock thats why im gonna get spindle lifts.
my buddy had a truck juss like mine and thats what he did, and it sat just how i wanted it. but i think if i were to put 32s and 3" spindle lifts on mine itd sit almost flat. Idk if i have spring sag or what..

1.5-2" rake is pretty normal for a pickup in stock form.

Spindles and crank your bars...there's guys running 35's on that setup with your suspension. 33's very comfortably!

I ran 32s on my 2wd coil lifted on spindles. int eh back I had shackles and AAL, if you want the "cali" look, then just choose one of lifts for the back.
