Default Fabtech 2wd 1500 lift spindle on 2wd 2500h
I recently decided to beef up my 2500 so I purchased 2" leveling kit and it sits much higher, however the ride is very rough. I wanted to know if anyone out there has tried to experiment by throwing on the fabtech 1500 lift spindles onto their 3/4 ton to see if it will bolt in. I have read the spindles for the 2wd are interchangeable between the 1500-3500 2nd gen trucks but I would like someone with experience to confirm it.

What I ultimate goal is: to use the fabtech lift spindles (if I can source a pair out from somewhere) and use them with the coil spring spacers to ease up the load just a tad on the springs (maybe even the ball joints) and still keep a moderate lift.

Please keep in mind I have the v10 engine so my springs are like the cummins springs: much stiffer than the 5.2/5.9

I wouldn't suggest using parts built for supporting a 400lb or so engine on a suspension carrying an 800lb engine
