    is there any difference in strength between spindle lift kits and traditional kits with upper a-arm drop brackets? clicky

    the splindle kits look easier to install, but if theyre weaker, then f**k that

    The kit looks almost identical to the new H2 lift kits. They don't seem too bad as far as IFS goes. The lateral compression arms look as if they would really help out when lateral force is at work on the front end (like whem climbing a large rock or embancment.)

    I think it is a better set-up because the whole suspension hasn't been relocated, only the bottom bracket and in the kit you've linked to, the bottom bracket is a one piece cradle. This should no worse than stock.

    Looks like a nice set up Id like to see how that holds up on the trail.
