Coil lift vs. Spindle lift

Would it make a difference if i got 3" coils in the front than getting 3" spindles?

yea the spindles would be cheaper...$350 or so for the spindles plus about up to $100 for the rear depending on which route you go. versus about $300 for new arms and $140 for coils...unless you buy from me i have some fabtech control arms and 2.5" lift coils with shocks that ill let go for $300 with shipping...just need new ball joints on the arms...w00t free plug for me, haha

Im new to the $700+, but I was just wondering where you can get spindles for $340. I have only seen them for about $700+. Looking to pick some up. Thanks

I found them, thanks. Might pick some up or go with a lift kit, not sure yet. Do the spindles hold up offroad? nothing crazy, just some trails and maybe some mud?

sounds like a plan to go with the spindles. i dont plan on doing any crazy wheeling or anything, just some trails to go bike riding. Thanks for informing me on where to find them.
