spindle lift

i am planning on getting a 3" spindle lift for my 2000 2wd s10. i have checked all of the 2wd lift manufactures i know of: fabtech, camburg, california super trucks, baja concepts, and aim industries/chassis tech.

the 2 lifts that stick out to me because of price are the chassis tech and camburg. the chassis tech lift is $299 but only includes the spindles, a rear flip kit is another 90 bucks. this kit does not include extended brake lines or shocks. the camburg kit is $450 and includes the spindles and brake lines but im not sure if it has shocks or a rear lift. they do not list shocks or a rear lift on the webpage so i would guess not.

there are a few things that will make up my mind that i think you guys can help with. first of all, i need to know how much extended brake lines are. if they arent much then i will be leaning toward the chassis tech lift. second, i need to know if i need new shocks with this type of lift or if i can keep the stock ones. last of all i need to know if i can just do a rear spring flip without buying that $90 kit... or if i cant, is there a cheaper kit out there? (im not a welder)

thank you in advance

Re: spindle lift

as for the brake lines, i don't think they are too much.... you will not need new front shocks, because you aren't doing anything to your front arms. In the rear, you could lift it any number of ways, you could get new springs that are arched 3" over stock, but that would be kind of pricey, you could do a combination add a leaf and shackle lift for the 3", or you could flip the axle. But flipping the axle will increase your chances of axle wrap. also, you need new spring purches on your axle and new shock mounts. no matter what, you will need longer shocks in the rear, i think, and longer brake lines.
hope this helps a little
