Hey everyone I recently purchased a spindle kit that will raise the truck 3', it currently has a 1.5' level kit up front. Could anyone tel me how much I'd have to lift in the back to level it out and prevent the back from squatting?

Are you combining the 3" with the 1.5"? I don't really recommend it but people do a lot of things i don't recommend.

If that's what you're doing, rear will need to come up about 3"-3.5"

Stacking is never a good idea. Better to just buy a lift if the height you want.

The spindle lift, lifts the spindle and doesn't interfere with the coils.

To prevent squatting you should really have air bags to level it out, but to make it even with front as dd said 3 to 3.5 inch rear lift.
