The McGaughy's spind kit comes with different bump stops.

I don't tow with mine so I can't really give insight(they decided not to order a hitch from the factory but yay I've got remote start -_-) but the ride with stock shocks is fine, obviously stiffer but not bad. They sell the rear shocks from the Belltech kit and I was considering buying those. Also, the McGaughy's kit has a track bar relocator unlike the Belltech kit so it pushes the rear end out to one side, from what I've heard.

Don't forget that the spindle kit pushes the front tire out, wider track. I do not like this aspect of the dodge spindle kits. I'll stay with springs.
While the spindles do push your front end out a little bit, it's not that noticeable unless you really *look* at it. Luckily the little bit of offset the spindles provide helps to clear some SRT10 wheels since they take such a wide tire.
