doetsch lift spindles are comparable to fabtech. i can't say either of them are crap, but i've had my fabtech spindles on my truck for 3 years now with no issues.

i want to say the btf arms are around $500 ready to bolt on. that includes a machined, heat treated pin that just slides into the ball joint hole on your spindle with no modification.

i have no clue about spring tech stuff, but you get what you pay for.
