I currently have a 2.5/1.5 spacer/shackle ReadyLift kit installed on my 09 SE and I am ready for more lift before its time to buy tires.

I have been looking at the PRG 2wd spindle lift package but I don't need the spacers or shackle the lift comes with. What are the best options to lift the rear the additional 4 inches to keep the leveling?

2" AAL and 2" block? or 4" Fabtech block (not one on PRG)?

Are you trying to add the spindles to your current lift for 6.5" total or to remove the 2.5" spacers and have 4" total up front?

I never understood why guys are afraid to stack rear components, there is nothing wrong with doing so. Obviously the best solution is a new leaf pack that gives you the desired height and weight handling on its own, but the cost is usually much more (unless you do a frankenpack). The best ride will also be from a new leaf pack. But if you can't do that for whatever reason shackle + AAL + block is fine. Just know this: shackles will wear out the stock springs much faster, AAL is more of a band aid on factory springs, and blocks can cause axle wrap (wearing the springs even more).

Also, I don't think I'd go any bigger than about a 2" block. Tall blocks are ugly and make it look like you couldn't afford a real lift. If you want a level ride at 4" up front without a custom leaf pack, I'd do 2" AAL with 1" block. If you are going for 6.5" up front, 2" AAL, 2" block, adjustable shackles on 1.5"

Hey, wanted to see if you had an update on what combo you went with?

Yeah I went with the CST spindles and a 2" spacer in the front. In the back I added a 2" AAL, a 2" block and kept my 1.5" shackle. I also added the Bilstein 5125 rear shocks and threaded brake lines.

Haven't had any issues with it so far but I also haven't done any serious aggressive driving.
