Default Drop spindles or lowered control arms

Thinking about lowering my hardbody pickup. So i previously had a 95 hardbody that i turned down my torsion bars to lower it and ride was not that great. So i was thinking about Belltech 2" drop spindles or Djm 3" lowered control arms. Lmk what you guys think. Thanks

My personal preference would be spindles. I’ve used both and currently have both installed on my son’s truck. Spindles are easier to install. Only catch is spindles can require larger wheels depending on the design of the wheel.

I can’t say for sure whether those will work with spindles or not. It’s possibly been covered on the forum before though

15" chrome pathfinder wheels will clear spindles without modification.
