McGaughy spindles,springs,shocks

Pick up a screaming deal on a set of McGaughy spindles, springs and shocks off CL for my 85 C10. $100 for all.
Only problem is, any number I search for off the parts comes up nothing.
The guy I bought them from as an absolutely sweet 86 shortbed. He didn't like how low the set dropped it.
All I want to know is, how much of a drop am I going to get?
Shocks are #1850, which is the only number that makes sense.
Spindles have 6072R on them.
Springs have 7387-2 on them.

Any help will be appreciated.

McGaughys drop spindles are 2.5” drop.
The spring part number ends in 2 so my guess would be 2” drop.
4.5” drop total?

Without pictures there is no way to tell if they are drop spindles

Re: McGaughy spindles,springs,shocks

Called a company to purchase a Mcgaughy front kit but was told they stopped carrying their product because they dont offer individual pieces if one of the parts goes bad. So for the kit i was looking at was lowering spindles, coils, hub, slide on rotor and loaded caliper. His example was if the hub went bad customer would have to buy an entire another kit to fix the issue.

Can anyone confirm this?

Re: McGaughy spindles,springs,shocks

I have no idea what you are talking about.
You can buy any part of a McGaughys drop kit individually.
Spindles, springs, flip kits, etc.

Go to McGaughys website and get your part number.
Then use that to shop for your best price.
