Default Spindles advantage?

Whats the advantage of using spindles on the front of your car? If it is an advantage, what does it take to transfer it over to a spindle?

the big advantage to spindles on the front is they allow the tires to spin, :lol:
Can you be more specific? Are you talking about spindle mount struts vs struts with a hub?
Spindle mounts are lighter, and allow you to use a lighter front wheel and brake.
Spindle mount struts are a little cheaper than the ones with the hub, but, the spindle mount wheels are a lot more money than regular wheels, so overall cost will be more. They should only be used in cars that are light, less than about 2600 lbs, and not used on the street.
