Has anyone used or currently using the dropped spindles from racecraft? I am looking at running them along with the shorter a-arms and some coil-overs. Any pics out there of fox's with this set up.

the drop spindles make your suspension geometry so much better. i would highly recommend them.

when do you need these? if i'm looking at going with eibach pro springs to drop my fox body is the drop spindles something that i'll need as well? or do these only get used when you're looking at a couple of inches of drop?

You can just do the springs.

The "problem" with lowering springs is that they change the resting angle of the A-arm. Ideally it should be parallel to the ground at rest, with lowering springs the A-arm becomes angled up a little bit. This affects your alignment settings and introduces some bump steer.

Usually I see drop spindles uses when people want to lower their car a LOT, or when the suspension isn't really designed to be lowered (like in a torsion bar front end).
