I put on Powder Pro skis. Same effect. The spindle bolt is 1 inch higher off the ground than factory skis. Most people don't realize, but a Powder pro bottom is the same as a SLT bottom on hardpack. The powder pro has a second vertical wall for steering in powder. Hence the taller profile and better turning in loose snow.

Looked up the prices on my current sled and spindles are $195 each and a-frames are $105 each so not a cheap upgrade in my opinion

I have a credit at the dealer and I can sell off the old parts. Would be a pretty cheap up grade for me vs buying a 2020.

If the spindle is 1 1/2 inches taller wouldnt the upper a arm mounting to bulkhead be higher?

No the length is added between the lower arm and ski mount.

Is spacing between the mount points on the spindle the same? Just curious.

Yes, the only difference in measurements like I posted earlier, the ski mount is lowered 1.5 inches.
