Default ive finally decided.

ok ive been switching back and forth for half a year now on what lift i want to do. if i can do it... a 3" fabtech spindle and a Belltech 6400 shackle. can i do the spindle lift on the front if i have a 4WD with torsion bars? also if i do that do i need to replace to larger shocks? any bad things from doing that lift?

im wondering about the shocks because i jacked up my front end to see how it would look sitting 37 and a half inches in the air. when i did my shock look all weird. like the top cylinder looked like it was pulled off the bottom cylinder part of the shock.

Spindle lift is for 2WD only. So no, the spindle lifts wont work with your truck.

you could use torsion bar keys to further elevate your crank on the front end.. but they say its bad for your balljoints and such.

Your truck will look fine with your t-bars cranked all the way. Ur shocks will be fine too. If your running small tires the gap in the wheel well could look pretty funny.
