Any issues thus far with the lift? Where did you get yours installed, unless you installed them yourself?
No issues at all. No rubbing or anything. I did the lift myself and it took a few hours. I also wanted to say that I used the new cast iron series spindle from CST. I just have a big issue with having plates of steel welded together and called a SAFE spindle which is why I went for the cast units. Also the cast spindles are a couple hundred less than the fabbed ones. Be aware that the spindles push out the front wheel about 1". Here is a list of the parts:
4" CST cast lift spindle from Performance Lifts...........$640 Bought on Ebay to save California sales tax
17x8 Pro Comp Extreme wheels with 0 backspace......$550 Summit Racing on Ebay
295/70/17 Nitto Trail Grappler tires........Tirebuyer.com at $295 each
2" solid aluminum block kit from Ebay.......$50.00
CST extended brake lines from So Cal Supertrucks.........$130
One other thing is that my wife uses the truck with my kids so it had to fit under a standard parking garage otherwise I would go much higher. It just clears a 6'9" parking structure if that matters to you.
