Default NNBS 3.5" CST spindle lift question

I have an 08 2wd NNBS. I was thinking about putting the 3.5" spindle and 2" or 2.5" CCM spacer in the front, 3 or 4" blocks in the rear and possibly a body lift. Question is I have a set of 22x9.5 XD Badlands and I was thinking about running 35s. Would it be possible to clear 35s with 22s with just the spindle lift and leveling kit, or is a body lift a must also? Also pics would be nice too if anyone has the CST spindle lift

It will be close with the CST and leveling kit on 35's, you'll probably have to trim a little off the fender. I have 33's on mine with just a leveling kit and I had to trim a little.

do you live in Cypress Texas?

I think it might fit being that would make it a 5.5" lift...gonna be close even with trimming but Im thinking of doing a similar setup.

Whats the offset on your wheels?

there are a couple of nnbs trucks on here that have that spindle and an aftermarket coilover (which would be like your leveling kit) and are running 315/70-17's.. http://www.socalsupertrucks.com/gallery.jsp?id=53

Yeah Im from cypress, tx.

Did the equations and came out to 24.384 mm offset or .96 inches offset. that doesnt sound right. The backspacing is 5.71". I bought them used (2 months old) so I dont have the box that says lol. I did test fit them with the truck stock and the tire should stick out about an inch or so

Its the width of the wheel that is going to kill you on trimming. Trucks running 315s have 8in wide wheels.

yeah I figured with a body lift plus leveling kit, that would give me 8 1/2" to 9" so I figure 35s would fit. These nnbs suck for bigger tires and the tall but narrow fender wells
