CST Spindle Lift Thread

Just wanted to create a thread for those fortunate few of us who have CST spindles or coils. I think the quality of this kit is amazing and not to mention super stout. Please post pics, comments or information or just show of your CST equipped ride.
here is mine:

Great thread Bobby!!! These spindles are a night and day difference over the factory design and feel. The nice thing is they can be mated up with so many different lift options. Spacer/Coilover/Coil,Strut Assembly ect.. Dropping the location of the hub does not drop the lower control arm there for creating more overall ground clearance. The CST spindle is the ultimate way of lifting a 2wd truck.

Icon rear leaf spring expansion pack 1.5 lift (doubtful), Bilstein 5100's, and Pure Performance shackles 2.0 lift (no way more like 1.0) saving for some taller shackles, and some ladder bars

from stock to where i am at now i am 11" higher. minus 2" to account for the tires. since the stockers on the factory 20's are almost 33's. I have the CST spindles, Icon's cranked to almost max. and that is where i got the 9". i also got the PRG a-arms so my alignment is spot on. I got the biggest shackles from street tacos. i think they were 4". but i also used the deaver aal, and a 1.5 block cuz i didnt like the huge lean. bilstein 5100's in the rear. also have the street tacos carrier bearing bracket. driveline is straight and vibration free.

ride is way better than stock and i can hit dips and speed bumps at 60 no probem.

It's really hard to look at this tundra and not admire it. Like CoachBuilder said you can't get a more diverse and adjustable kit that offers as much clearance and a such a solid ride as CST

thanks bud. i reallt think it is the best way to do a lift on the 2wd. Fully functional, great ride, and fully reverse-able. all bolt on. did it all in driveway in a afternoon. no welding or cutting. not even to make it not rub. (as long as you get the correct offset wheel...)

Nice! don't forget to post pics. In fact before and after shots with measurements would be even better!

I don't think you can go wrong with either. Even Fox, Camburg or kings would get the job done.
