Default Help cst 7" without spindles

this may be a dumb question but oh well.....
im about to buy a cst 7" lift for my 04 2wd qc but without the 4" spindles...
so it has the
coils which are 3" or more
shocks
and 2.5" blocks
how can i expect the truck to look with just this and what size tires could i fit max?
i could always order just the 4" spindles too but id like to try this first
thanks guys any input is great!
cory

how much are you getting it for? the 3'' coils are about 200 new the spindle is about 800 thats the biggest part of the lift if you can get it cheap enough id go for it, but with just the 3'' coils ive heard you only get about 2'' of lift could be wrong but thats what ive read. depending on your wheels and there backspacing you might be able to stuff 35s in there

yeah the more i think about it its pretty much the same as a 3" suspension lift with out the spindles and i think the most im going to get without spacers or body lift are 33s without rubbing...
its not good enough price.. i think im just going to wait for a used full 7" cst lift to buy or just break down and buy a new one... or 6" rough country....
im gettin antsy tho i know that...

True you might could squeeze 35s in I've seen others do that but there is a cst 7" kit for sale on this forum right now look at the for sale section I believe his name is volcom or something like that but I've heard it's a great kit

ya he is a good guy, but i did see a thread awhile back where a guy had a 2.5 spacer on a 06 2wd ram and he had 35 12.50s with zero rubbing and it looked alright but allitle bit stuffed, so you may can get away with 35s with the kit from volcom and then later down the road just buy the 4'' spindle
