Having spindals that allow your frame and body to sit higher (as the wheels sit lower) seems like a good idea for hopping.

Anyone ever heard, make or try this out.

Does anyone make these, or does anyone know of a machine shop that would make me a set? 84 Regal

I guess if you customized the up and Low a-arms you could still keep the old spindals.

Hmm... just by chance I found a site that has drop a-arms, so there may already be pre-made lift a-arms...

king pin...ball joint, so to answer your question...YES
...KING PIN IS THE SPINDLE SHAFT THAT THE ROTOR GOES ON...
BUT IN FORDS(''I'' BEAM) IT WOULD BE LIKE THE BALL JOINT..
WE STILL USE A BALL JOINT, UNLESS LIKE MY DANCER WE USE A 7/8 HEIM JOINT(SPHERICAL ROD END)MADE OF CHROME-MOLY

uuhmm, I don't know why yor calling that a kingpin, becasue I have never heard of it called that, its the spindle, its not a kingpin. For instance your right in fords with the I beams. Ever hear of KAI, Kingpin axis inclination. It is the same as SAI, steering axis inclination. I kingpin sets the upper and lower pivot points for the steering axis, same as balljoints.
