Default Another 2wd spindle question

After tons of research, I still feel like everyone is on a different page, as far as lift spindles go..

I have a 2011 2wd xlt on coils. Almost every company/person has a different opinion on what will or won't fit on my truck. I called doetsch to clear up a few things, and the person I talked to said that the ABS sensor mounting points changed in the middle of 2009 (bigger mounting holes). He told me that if I went with a spindle made for a 09-10 truck, I'd be fine. That advice made me more comfortable about buying a spindle for a 2010 but I'm still sketched out about the fact that every other company selling spindles don't specify anything about the change in the abs sensor. I'm seeing spindles with year ranges of 98-10 all over the place. Why does doetsch acknowledge this change while no one else changed anything?

Anyways, is there anyone here that actually has expereance with physically installing spindles that don't address this whole abs sensor change, on a 09+ ranger. Any actual facts regarding the subject would be much appreciated.. Thanks

Why worry about all of this when Doetsch gave you the answer you are looking for and carry the product you want? Buy from them and be happy

IMO, i think doetsch is kinda over priced. No disrespect to anyone, I'm aware of the whole 'quality' argument but if everyone is giving you the same amount of lift and retaining stock suspension/steering geometry, why does doetsch charge like $150 more than some of the other sellers? Spindles are spindles in my book; they either work or they don't. It's not like you can feel the difference in ride quality from one to the next..

If this ends up being my only option, I'll probably cave and buy them. I'm just looking for some feedback from someone that has installed these other brands on a post 09 with the new ABS sensor setup.. Thanks
