Default Questions about suspension and 3" lift spindles

I have a 02 Ram 1500 2wd regular cab, in the next couple of weeks I'm going to have some suspension work done. I've decided I want to go with lift spindles. Are the 3" lift spindles the ones I need to go with to level my front end with the rear? I've also heard that if I use 3" lift spindles I will need longer shocks and brake lines, is this right? Also are there any companies out there that sell the spindles and shocks in a package, if not with using 3" lift spindles how long will the shocks be that I'll need to look for? Also I'm wanting to go ahead and replace my coil springs any suggestions on a particular brand? Just need a little help, needing to get this done ASAP! Any information or advice on what companies to use, ect... would be appreciated. Thanks

3" lift spindles are what you want. You will not need longer brake lines. You will not NEED longer shocks although you can get some or add extensions that screw on the top of them

Hijacking this thread -- Can you mix a 3 inch spindle lift with a 2 inch coil spacer? I've already got longer shocks (2 inches longer) and the spacers.
