Lift spindles

I'm gonna be swapping out my lift springs in the front of my Ranger for 3" lift spindles pretty soon, I'm just wondering if there's really a difference between the no name spindles and name brand ones. No name ones are around $250, the Crown Suspension ones are $380. Which one would you buy?

1) 2001 2010 Ford Ranger 3" Lift Spindles Knuckles | eBay

2) 3" Front Lift Kit Spindles 1998 2011 Ford Ranger Two Wheel Drive Truck 4x2 564 | eBay

3) 3" Lift Spindles 01 10 Ford Ranger Lifted | eBay

I would go with Doetsch Spindles as a lot of members are running them and love them. I had Fabtech and had no problems but have seen others with problems. For suspension I would pay more to have that piece of mind and not worry about my stuff breaking while driving down the road.

I wish I had gone with a spindle lift right off the bat. The springs I got have almost no give to them, makes for a very bumpy and harsh ride

It's not so much the springs as it is that you limit your down travel by stuffing a larger spring in there. Also your shocks will play a roll in your rough ride if they are not equipped for the job.

And don't worry I have done both lifts and spent money on things I thought would work before buying what is best. You'll get it.

Luckily I learned a bit more about lifts before I got the shocks so I went with Bilstein 5100's all around
