    4" Spindles and a 3" Body Lift. Or go with the 7" full crossmember kit, and some trimming.

    Yeh that kit looks good, it comes with UCA so it will help the camber more.


    Heres one that other members are running, its FABTECHS 7" Kit, theres some pics near the bottom of the page as well.

    Which kit would be better? The 7" kit with the new upper control arms or the 7" Fabtech with the lower cross brace system?

    Sorry to thread jack, but I think it goes with the flow of the thread....

    Well u can get the 7" Fabtech, and get the UCA's later if u want them, but it would be best if u got them with the kit, and only mess with install once. JMO tho...

    Fabtech makes 2 kits for nbs 2wd trucks (99-06). The old style (which is 6") is 3" spindles, 3" springs, and new UCA's. The updated style has a dropped crossmember and makes for better ball joint angles. You get more like 7" out of the crossmember kit as well, so you could clear 35"s pretty good on it with a little trimming and the right wheels.
    Custom 4" spindles 3" Fabtech UCA/coil kit - 20x10 gunner 6's on 33x12.5 terra grapplers - HP Tuners - 100% color matched - 1300 watts going to a 10" Fi BL - 8000k HID's all around- and so much other stuff

    i got the older 6" fabtech on my truck. 3" spindle and 3" coil. i got the used for $400, also i bought new ball joint,s 3" blocks and an add-a-leaf, totally $668.42. the instal was really easy and straight forward. i like the look of this kit better than the other because it looks cleaner. the lower valence on the bumber covers the suspension completly so it looks real clean. the other kit drops down the crossmember and i dont like the look of that.

    from what i researched the sprintech spindles are good but the uca are no good. i wouldn't buy the kit but i would trust the spindles.
