    Hey guys i need some advice on lifting my 2008 2WD Tundra. my truck is leveled with bilstein 5100 which is about a 2.5" front lift (pic attached). i will like to get my truck up to a 6-7" lift and will like to know if i can achieve this by installing the 3.5" CST spindles lift?
    I am also planning to lift the rear with 3" shackles.
    I will be getting 35" tires with 20x10 -12 offset fuel krank D517 rims.
    Will appreciate your advice.
    Thanks.

    Im pretty sure you can. Usually the spindle lifts they combine with a strut spacer up front or people have swapped out new coilovers. I think you will need more than just the shackles to keep that rear level with the front after the spindles. Im not too familiar with 2nd gen but that tire and wheel combo your looking at is pretty wide even 6" or so inches of lift I would assume youll need to do a good amount of trimming.

    my truck already has bilstein 5100 (front and rear) which can adjust up to 2.5-3" will these shocks work with the spindle lift?

    Installing 3" lift shackles and a 6" lift up front will not give you anything close to a factory ride.

    I would say yes but call CST to Confirm. The 3" inch shackles wont give you a full 3 inches of lift in the rear so your front is going to sit up higher after the 3.5 spindles are put on.

    Easiest way is the Spindle lift. This will achieve an easy 3.5 inches while keeping mostly stock geometry.
    Look into the Maxtrac or CST spindle.

    Pair these spindles with OME 612, OME 614s, 5110, Icon, Fox, 6112, Boss, Fat Bobs whichever you like for your budget. These will give you an additional 2.5 inch to 3.25 inch lift

    Therefore, paired together you will get anywhere from 6 to 7 inches of front lift.

    ***** These lift Spindles are only for 2wd *****


    The rear is a different story.
