I've had DJM spindles and springs on mine for about 10 years with no issues. There are probably better and worse brands as well.

I generally use Western Chassis or BellTech parts in that order.
You should be good as long as you stick with a known brand name.

DJM, Western Chassis and BellTech are my picks. I do avoid BellTech spindles, though, since they push the track width out.

I called Bell tech on that and they were admit that the wheels are not pushed out..

I went with the 5/6 Bell tech kit, no complaints ..

Bell tech was very good at addressing all the questions I had.

The other companies did not give me straight answers about the amount their kits would drop my truck.

That's been the debate all along... they said they don't, customers say they do. (Including me)
Guess it'll just be one of lifes unanswered questions

That's only true of they've changed the casting for their spindles in recent years. I've never installed them on my trucks, but I've seen friends end up with wider track widths (and subsequent rubbing issues) after installing them.
