73 nova, tall 2'' drop spindles?

ive read a bunch of articles on putting the b-body spindles on gm a-body to increase traction due to the raised balljoint. what about the aftermarket "tall" 2'' dropped spindles like fatmans "G-Force Spindle" if i remember right the b-body spindles move the balljoint 1.5'' up compared to a stock a-body. but these aftermarket ones raised the balljoint 2''. is this too much, or just right? besides i'd like to use stock brakes and not have to use b-body brakes with those spindles. all the heidts tall 2'' dropped spindles raised the balljoint to 1.5''.. but they dont make them for the 68-72 nova. so my question is.. are the g-force spindles by fatman any good?
also, i dont have an airbag suspension so if i went with the drop spindles i'd want to keep the stock coil springs up front right? i think it would be way too low to drop them both 2''. thanks for the help.
