Default Dana 60 high steer arms

Im trying to decide which route Im gonna go for arms. Is there a huge benefit to springless arms? I was thinking of even getting a set that go over the original cap, or is that not such a good idea. Input please. Its a 93 yj with 79 ford 60. Standard box for now, spring over and Im gonna run gm tres.

Some say the springs can allow the knuckle to "chatter" and that leads to broken knuckles and axles. Not sure though. I have the springless ballistic arms and like them a lot. Keep in mind too that if your actually steerings off them (especially with full hydro) that on the ford knuckles tend to be fairly weak compared to the chevy/dodge knuckles.

I leaning towards these arms. Is there a reason there cheaper or will they do the job. I realize I still have to buy studs and drill and ream, but I can do that. Is it necessary to have the 10 degree flat spot on top?
