Spindle Lift or UCA/Coils lift opinions

Hey guys Ive got an 02 tacoma 5 lug Im trying to decide between the two lifts, basically the will run me the same amount of money. I would like to do the spindles but am unsure on the install and can't seem to find any write ups with pics on how to install first gen spindles on 5 lugs.
The lift springs and ucas are pretty straight forward its just gunna be a pain to get the springs in place. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Spindles are a fun project. Literally bolt on.

I bought used fabtech spindles and they didnt come with hardware. What should I do about the steering arm inserts, should I just used the factory ones?

I would not buy that fabtech lift if I were you. Just save your money and keep your spindle lift

I have v6 coils on my truck, would it be worth it to get the UCA's? would they supply more lift or change my ride at all?
