Spindle lift vs. coilover

So i have been doing alot of research on the type of lift i wanted to purchase. I finally came to the conclusion of getting some icon coilovers. My mind was set on them until spindles came into play. The way i look at it spindles are the way to go. Their is no increase angle on my cv joint and its keeps the stock alignment. I know not to many people are running upgraded spindles so its getting me curious why more people are not. Is there something i should know about. Is their any long term affect? The reason im leaning towards spindles right now is because I dont have to worry about my ball joints going in the future. Share your knowledge about spindles with me. Thanks a lot MIKE

Yea but Icons are 1,000 too, and you have to preload the springs to get the 2.5 inches of lift which makes it ride stiffer than if it were to be set at 0. With spindles you can run Billys set at 0 plus get more lift. Is the ride still better with the icons?

One reason I wont get spindles is because it kicks the wheel out 3/4" in the front... I dont like that...
