lift spindles

    was looking at getting the rough country 3 inch spindles for my truck, have seen the kit with the blocks and the shocks, but was thinking about going a different route with my shocks, so i am just gonna buy the spindles. my question is do you get stock size shocks?, or do you get shocks for a 3 inch lift?, or since i already have the daystar leveling kit in the front do i get shocks for 5 inches of lift? just trying to figure it all out since everything seems to work with stock springs, so i dont know why you would need longer shocks. please some one give me the right advise so i dont blow out a shock or buy the wrong size. thanks guys!!!!!!

    You want longer shocks to match the suspension. This way you get the proper travel length, best ride and best articulation. Plus, aftermarket shocks are just cool.

    i say go with a 5" lift shock as well. but dont go with rough country ones. they are not very good. I say go Bilstein or rancho
