    Whats the best brake upgrade when using stock spindle?

    I have already bought brand new spindles, so i do not want to have to buy them again to do blazer upgrade. With that being said, which direction should i go when upgrading front brakes using the stock spindle. Minimum rim size will not be a problem, i have big wheels.
