Hello Jeff. I see you sent this visitor message nearly two months ago. Sorry, I didn't get notified and just happened to see it today. Just a hint, you may want to use Private Messages (PM's) vs. visitor messages. They're a lot more visible. But to answer your question, and maybe doesn't matter after this long, I have SN95 (96-04) spindles on my Mk3. These are decent, and work well with the Cobra brakes. Many identify them because they have a straight steering arm. But if you have a choice, most consider the 94-95 spindles with the curved steering arm to be better. In some cases, they provide better front end geometry and less bump steer. Mine work very well, and I don't have bump steer issues. But I'm just saying what many others would tell you. The FFR supplied spindles, assuming you're talking about their brand new 2-piece spindles, are supposed to be the best yet and better than any of the donor spindles. I would try to use them if you can.
