Hi all, finally installed my spindles!! I went with bilstein 5100's all around, front shocks set at 1.26" perch, and a 4" block in the rear. I love the stance, originally had a 3" rear block but I wanted just a touch of nose down rake. Truck appears pretty much level but it is sitting at 41" front and 41.75" rear, of course these numbers are with my tiny little stock tires. Wheels and tires coming soon..... fuel vapors.....maybe?? Anyway I really wanted to come on here to thank everyone who has posted, given their input and experiences regarding the spindle install, finished heights etc. made my life way easier (OK, maybe still need help with life issues, but install was easier) THANK YOU!!

Trucks are looking good! I ordered the spindles yesterday but probably won't put them on until the stock 275/55/20 tires are ready to be replaced (already at 40k miles though - but I'm ready to ditch the 2.5" level that somehow only raised the front 1.5").

Does anyone with the 4.5 in lift have a total ride height number they could share? I am looking at pulling the trigger on one of these kits, however I frequent parking garages. I'm trying to decide between a 2.5 in level and the 4.5 in maxtrac kit. I feel like the level won't give me enough lift to be satisfied, but I also don't want to completely ruin my downtown experience lol! Also, how do you guys think 33's on stock platinum rims will look? I was thinking of 305/55/20's.
