Question I have no idea what I have... Maybe you do

It's a long shot and the pics are not the best. I just took them tonight in my cramped garage.

Here's a pic of my front disc brake set-up. I think it's stock:

Really long shot here. I have KYB gas struts but what kind of spring is that:

This is what got me started on all this in the first place. I thought I had dropped spindles and would not fit 17x8 rims but they look alright. Do I have drop spindles or not?

Looks like the generic disc conversion kit that everyone sells. Mine came from SSBC. Standard spindles have bolt-on steering arms and caliper brackets, and the "bad" dropped spindles have the spindle+steering arm+caliper bracket as one big cast piece. From what I can tell from your pics, you've got standard disc brake conversion spindles (not dropped).

Here's what mine look like:





Can't tell ya anything about the spring.

Your sway bar is an Addco if you didn't already know .

Hey, thanks a lot. I was looking at dropped spindles online and noticed mine had some bolt on pieces and looked different. This really cleared things up.

Thanks again.
