If you like the ride it has now, just want it lower, go with spindles. If you think you want to be able to adjust the height and change the ride, air bags might be the better way to go. You don't have to have all the fancy controls for air bags. You CAN do it all manually. Just put hoses and air valves at each corner. You can't adjust ride/height on the fly, but you can put the bags in now and install controls later. Don't hook the bags together, one valve per bag! Tie them together and air can transfer from one side (or end) to the other.

Knowing what truck you have will make a difference. However, I will tell you that if you have an '08 or newer GM extended cab truck, be very careful if you plan to lower it. I had a highly recommended, well experienced shop lower mine (7" front/5" rear). It looked much better (still too high from the factory for my tastes) and drove fine. After a couple of years though, that stock large diameter, extremely thin wall aluminum driveshaft blew apart. The dealer said that it had been rubbing on the frame. I never had it off road and very seldom haul anything, still they would not repair it, much less warranty it. It does have a smaller diameter, steel driveshaft now though.
