    I am looking for drop spindles for my 1985 LeSabre, or a recommendation on lowering the front end.

    There are 2inch drop spindles from belltech. They're $410 for the pair. You could also do lowering springs for half that price. You won't find much for your car so you'll have to look up parts for a 94 to 96 impala ss for anything performance oriented. http://www.belltech.com/belltech-drop-spindle-set-92-96-impala-ss-caprice-2-drop-spindle-will-not-fit-ss-whl-2105.html

    For the lowering springs there's much more choices in brands from Canuck motorsports, Eibach, Belltech, Hotchkiss, and more.

    If you have the stock 11" front brakes, and want to stay that way, drop spindles for a 2nd gen F body will work. Just look for spindles for a 70-81 Camaro.

    Also I, you want to watch the clearance between the steering knuckle and the rim. Some of the Impala Ss guys over on their forum found that the tie rod can hit the wheel if you're running wider wheels.
