Default AllSport A Arm 6" Lift

I just purchased a 6" A Arm lift from Rocky Top Carts and mistakenly gave them the wrong dust cover color. They sent the lift and and spindles for the silver dust cap cart and mine are black (only difference is a longer spindle axle). Not until I assembled the entire lift and went to put the tires on did I notice the difference in axle diameter and length of the new spindle. So I called them and they were gracious enough to just exchange the two spindles for the correct ones. However, when they sent them to me they were 2 inches short of assembling to both the upper and lower A Arm. So I called today to ask if maybe they sent the wrong spindles (thinking maybe they were for a 4" lift) and they told me that the spindles (non-dependent on axle size) were the same length. But the original ones they sent were 12" long from center to center of mounting brackets (where they attach to the upper and lower a arms) and the ones they sent as a replacement were only 10". They are working to figure out what is happening (and they have been great to work with) and will let me know. My question is though, has anyone inistalled the AllSport A Arm lifts and shouldn't the spindles be the same length regardless of axle size for each kit? And I would think that a shorter lift (say a 4" lift) would have a 2 inch shorter spindle.

If you go to the manufacturers website you'll see that the 3" and 6" have the axle welded in different places to give different lift heights, not that one is longer then the other. If you have questions you can call the manufacturer directly as well as ask them.
