Definitely not your everyday beam front spindle. They look like they possibly started life as VW Thing balljoint spindles that someone has cut, ground, reinforced, and converted to uniballs. Finding replacement spindles (and arms) could be challenging as they're probably a one-off creation. Hope this helps, Good Luck!
