    I want to get those same spindles on my 96, but I have a few questions.

    1) Why did you decide on the Warrior Shackles vs the add-a-leaf?

    2) How long did it take to put it all together and was there any fab work involved?

    Add a leafs will not hold ride height after they settle and wear out. Shackles wont settle obviously and are extremely easy as well as cheap. There should be no fab required at all unless you want to run a bigger shock then you have to fab up new upper and possibly lower shock mounts. Other than that situation its simply "plug and play"
