Spindles can be done even faster! . Grinder fixes the braking issue and loss of turning radius while unbolting the brake line bracket fixes brake line issue. Couple hours... DONE.

Body lift isnt really all that bad. Ive done one on an older F150 I had. :Looks like alot on paper, but they have to be detailed for the lesser mechanically inclined. Either way, you will be done in a day. Helps to have help too.

Wouldnt unbolting the brake line bracket make it hazardous? Like what if the entire hard line got ripped out lol

The lift won't do anything to your wheel bearings, bigger tires will. Even then, they won't last that much less than with stock tires
