Long story short i bought some spindles off CL. I was told they were Doetsch, and the parts number branded on them confirmed that.... or so I thought. Upon further investigation my spindles appear to be identical to fabtech, yet with a doetsch part number of 589810 on them. So first question, why? Is that a universal part number?
Second, and most important, are these spindles for an XLT truck instead of an edge? He told me they are not for an edge model but I don't exactly trust what he said.

So what do i own? How do i know the difference between a spindle built for a torsion bar equipped ranger or a coil sprung one?
