Default dropped spindle HELP HELP HELP

I have a 01 2WD Silverado. I bought it and it was already lowered. Problem is... I snapped a lower ball joint and a stock one dosen't fit. The spindle has a BELL emblem on it so I called belltech but they said that its not their product. Does anyone know who manufactured this spindle?????? I need a lower ball joint NOW!!!! This is my only ride.

Is the stock ball joint too long? If so you will have to cut some of the threads off. I have had to do this with the BellTech spindles, it says to do so in the instructions and comes with a shorter nut. Just measure carefully you could have to cut quite a bit off and use lock tight on the nut.
