So I decided to go for it and see what I can get myself into with lifting my
2WD 98' Dodge Ram 3.9L V6.
Again I know its 2WD and V6 and there are skeptics out there about doing a lift on a 2WD V6 and also the 4x4 junkies who laugh
. Then again there were many of you who gave me encouragement and solidifide my decision to go ahead and give'er a try.
Once again, I am going with the 3.5" spindle lift from Fabtech which includes 4new shocks, 1 1/2" Block/Ubolt kit, 2 new spindles and the single shock steering stabilizer
. I am also buying new stock springs because i figure while im doing the lift there is no point putting the 12 year old rusty springs back in.
The reason for Fabtech is that after much searching and research they were the only ones I could find that gave a good combo of parts for what i was looking for and what i needed. Also the biggest decision maker was that they were simply one of the only companies I could find that made 2WD suspenison lifts that were available through Canadian distributors (please correct me if im wrong)
So the goods are listed below.... I ended up ordering through National Offroad in Burlington, Ontario. Ive been dealing solely with a guy named Matt and he has been excellent
