I went with raised spindles to keep the suspension geometry the same, the steering was heavy.
I believe that an adjustable beam to raise it keeps better stering geometry but worse suspension.

Which is better.??

i HAVE 205X15 TYRES SO HAVE REASOBABLE GROUND CLEARANCE.

SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS LOCK

Lift spindles are the better way to go, in my opinion. Heavy steering could be from the larger tires and changing the offset of center line from the wheels.

I was just comptenplating this subject.

I have a beam with adjusters in it.

But I have a better condition beam in my basement.

I also have a set of 2 1/2 higher spindles in my basement.

Was trying to decide if I add adjusters and use a stock spindle or skip the adjusters and use the raised spindles.
