Removing some lift and 35s

I've got an 04 ranger 2wd edge that has a 3" spindle lift, 3" body lift, cranked t bars, and aal's and 35s. Im wanting to get 33s for my truck and remove the lift spindles. Ive seen threads in the past and just the other day about fabtech lift spindles snapping...i drive my truck everyday at 55-65 most of the time, so its a bit scary knowing they could snap. I dont really have the money for 33s at the moment, so would it work if I just removed the lift spindles, and the aal's? They're 35x12.50x15's. Ive got pics in my gallery too if needed.

No I don't have the stock spindles. I just wonder if people have broke stock spindles.
