I have dropped spindles on my 33 and have used them on other cars, but none were Heights nor were the cars raced. Never had trouble.

What kind of racing?

You didn't say what kind of racing, I don't want to assume, but if it is drag racing they should be ok, unless you pull wheelies a lot, then I don't know if they would hold up. That would be some thing I would not say yes too.

I really don't want to be the one saying yep they will work, because I don't know if they would hold up. Doing mild wheelies, a couple inches might be ok. I would want to find out from someone that has done it, or call the company.

Heidts 2 " spindles

You didn't say what kind of car or truck you are talking about. But on a 67-69 Camaro the 1' taller ball joint was used to correct the steering geometry. If you are worried do a search on replacement bushings and ball joints for racing from afcoracing.com.
