    I just can not see this as being sensible. I have and had for yrs now a spindle lift and I barely clear without any rub 31x12.5 SS Thornbirds (Which is as tall as a 32")on 15x10 steelies. 33 stock and want 35's with a 3 inch spindle lift. It will require a hell of a hack job.

    Mine is a Pro Comp Spindle Lift, with Superlift 4" lift springs in the back and a 1" TT up front. But they do not sell or make them anymore. There is a few Spindle Lift Kits available on E-Bay for our 2nd Gen X's, and also a website too, but I will have to get that for you later as I am at work.

    for the wheel adapters are you just changing the lug pattern or are you going to space em out too? I have 2" spacers on mine and i love em. If you arent just remember your going to have to cut away the old bolts.

    I do not get your reasoning for wheel adaptors, and changing your bolt pattern. You can get many and most all wheels in stock pattern.

    Oh ok. Yea you should be more than fine. the two inch spacers cover the stock lugs completely so you wont have to cut anything away. Love em. real nice.
