Lowering my C10

Well after getting some interesting comments about selling My 1970 C10 and wanting to fix up My 1985 Silverado, I was wondering what is the best lowering spindle to use with 15x8 rally's, in the past I have used Bell and McGaughys and had to do some grinding and surgery to make them fit without rubbing,so My question is there any better spindles out there, just want to do a 2.5 drop in front with a 4" shackle kit in rear.

I have "heard" that the western chassis ones won't rub. That is what I bought for my c10, but I haven't finished it yet so I dont know if thats true or not.

My 82 C10 has WC spindles for 1.25" rotors and the 8x15 rally wheels don't rub the lower control arms. Don't know if the same is true for their spindles for 1.00" rotors.
Watch for good prices at their eBay store. Seems like I paid around $240 for mine last year including shipping.
