For everyone running 20" wheels up front. when adding 2" drop spindals to the stock front end 1. did it allow you to get the ride height you was looking for and 2. Did you have any alingment issues? Thanks for the help!

I have a bit of input for you on this. I'll align with your numbers:
1) Did it give me the ride height I was looking for? Yes. The ride height you're looking for could be different though and is also dependent on the tire size you try to go with.
2) Dropped spindles have absolutely zero effect on the suspension geometry, so the chances of the dropped spindles being responsible for alignment problems is slim to none, aside from the actual spindle compatibility with the components they connect to and come in contact with.

Thanks
Nick

Thanks!

I will be running 20 up front and 22 in the rear. Just wanted to bring the front end down a little to give it a more aggressive look. Air ride will be coming in the a few years.

I have accuair air ride on all four corners.you won't need drop spindles.you just have to set up an adjustable bump stop..then you adjust it to the desired height...
