dropped spindles

Getting ready to order dropped spindles for our S10 frame. Finding quite a variance in price. The cheapest I've found so far is Ebay ($130 ish). Anybody have any experience in which are good ones/bad ones?? Want to save as much as possible but also want ones that will work/be safe...
Thanks-

Re: dropped spindles

I haven't driven my truck anywhere yet, but these are the ones I used, and they fit fine.

Re: dropped spindles

Looking at Ebay you have Belltech that run 199 . McGaugy's for about 10 bucks less and the around 130 buckers. I'd watch shipping costs though as some of those "great" deal sellers beat the crap out of you with shipping costs.

If you have Amazon prime check there as sometimes the price including the "free" shipping beats the Ebay + shipping total by a bunch.

Re: dropped spindles

I bought some cheap drop spindles for my S10 conversion. Then I thought better of it and bought some of the expensive ones. They were identical. I returned the expensive ones and installed the cheap ones.
