Default Looking for Spindles

I just got my ranger (2wd XLT) and the previous owner installed coil spacers. Now the ball joints are practically gone so I'm looking to fix it with new upper control arms and spindles. I've been looking around and only found doetsch 3" spindles for almost $500. Is there anywhere else I can look for a better deal? I'm always worried about getting parts off of ebay...

Spindles I found: http://www.doetsch-shocks.com/21.asp (part # 63058)

I ran those spindles with no probs. You can run OEM UCAs on those spindles, unless you plan on leaving the coil spacer, then I would switch to the aftermarket UCAs.

I was going to remove the coil spacers, so I should be good. Thanks! I also texted the guy who posted the spindles in the classifieds.
