Default Superlift + Coil-over Conversion + Fabtech Spindles???

hahaha i just came up with this idea today and i'm sure its retarded and wouldn't work but i was just curious. if it would work than you could have a 7" SUSPENSION lift!!!! no body lift!! that would be sick but then you'd have to find a way to lift the back end 3 more inches.. MORE BLOCKS!!! hahaha

The spindles won't work. Plus you would have crazy CV angles. The rear wouldn't be hard to do. 6" Lift springs with an AAL and a shackle set at the max height.

The fabtech spindles aren't made to have CV's in them. They're just a SPINDLE, not a knuckle.

Sorry, the most you're gonna get is MAYBE 6in Superlift with the coil-over conversion and a 3" body lift...

If it hasn't been done, it's cuz it won't work.

I'm thinking 'glass front and rear, ditch the bodylift, and running 37's. It'll be the same height as I am now, but on 37's with huge ass fenders.

if you take a 2wd edge, you could do a 4inch trailmaster lift with 3.5 fabtech spindles
