I think Ford's proprietary name is "Advancetrac", actually. I read a few threads from people who said it freaked out when they tried to lift their trucks, but I was able to put 31s and at 2" lift on my 2010 without causing issues. 🤷🏻‍♂️ YMMV.
You must of went with coil spacers or a body lift?

O.p wants a spindle lift. From what I've read.. the aftermarket spindles dont have the abs sensor or vss or whatever it is in the same spot as factory, so it doesn't read correctly and causes issues.

My credo
I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!
I did the pre-2008 mod, installed pre-2008 axle blocks and put 31s on my 2011 and it didn’t freak out.

Changed the torsion bars from Bs to #1s and the rear leafs from 1250# to 1750# but the drive line components Were never touched. That might be the key.

Your point on the spindles might be on track though.

The Maxtrack spindle lifts have the mounting spots for the abs to go into. The stabilitrak crap is something different from what I've researched.

No issues.

Advanctrac is Stoopid. Don't know how to get rid of it though.

built, not bought
clip the wires or unplug the abs sensor? sure you wont have abs, but back in the day abs didnt exist anyhow. my ‘94 the rear abs never worked anyhow, still stopped fine. Unless they tied it in with the cruise control or some other system you need.

Tighten it until it snaps then back off a 1/4 turn
I think as long as your wheel / tire combo has the same outside diameter front and rear. I'm running 245/45-18 on the front and 275/40-18 on the rear but they are both 26.7 dia. I have no issues at all.
