Spindles allow you to run 16" rims.

You get more ground clearance with spindles (better for offroad). Plus, you can add coilovers or 5100's to lift it even higher.

Nope, you can't run 16 inch wheels with a Drop Bracket lift, due to tie-rod clearance. X2 on spindle lift, ride is a lot nicer vs A 6" DB lift which I think the ride is horrible.

Yea, but I would spend the extra money for Camburg's. Some guys are already reporting a lot of rust with the Maxtrac spindles.
