A/F/X forged spindles

Does anybody make and sell a stock A/F/X forged spindle that is 1.5" taller and NOT dropped 2"s?

1st Gen Camaro type here.

You can accomplish the same thing with your stock spindles by doing the Guldstrand Mod. (google it). It will improve your camber curve and increase your caster at the same time. I did the mod on my Nova and it made a notable improvement with no down side.
If you want a more aggressive camber curve you can add longer upper ball joints. Howe racing is a good source. Just don't get carried away and use a joint stud that is too long.

Ken,

What is too high/long an upper ball joint stud length?
