Advice on a leveling kit or Spindles for my 06 2WD Crew Cab
So when I bought my truck it was slammed. I've since returned it to stock(did the labor myself- it was a b**ch). So now I dont like the way the front sits low...when I installed the front coils I added a 1inch Daystar spacer thinking it would do something but I cant tell any difference between mine and other stock Chevys. I should mention that I was not aware that I needed to put in a "coil insulator" on the bottom of the coil so that the coil does not touch metal to metal with the lower control arm seat. So now when I hit a bump it makes a noise like the coil is rebounding off the control arm, it is very annoying.
So my dilemma is when I go in to make the correction with the coil insulator I want to either replace the spindles with 2-3" lift spindles or a 2-3" billet spacer. I wanted to know what the pros and cons are of each and also if I should go ahead and block the rear leafs as well for a real nice look. Money is definitely something I am taking into consideration, I want it to be a good solution but not break the bank.
I saw this kit on e-bay(I know, I know) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/99-06...item2eb5c860e5
Any input would be hugely appreciated!! Thanks

I would look into CST Suspensions. They have a 4" kit for your truck that looks really good. It comes with shocks, spindles & rear blocks.

Thanks for the responses, I think I'm leaning towards the spindles. But the cost is pretty high, if I were to do the 3inch billet spacer and a 1inch block would it sit level?
