I bought some used spindles and want to verify that they are the right year. What is the easiest way to tell if I have 95 or +96 spindles

If your spindle looks like the one in the photo, it's a '95. The 96 spindle has a straight steering arm, I think. The '95 also has "F5Z7xx" cast in near the lower caliper mounting hole.
You should also get new spindle nuts when you install the hubs, as the old ones are a one time use nut. they need to be tightned to between 190 and 250 ft lbs, there is no cotter pin holding the hub on, only the torque from the spindle nut.

Here's a pic of a driver's side 96 spindle. Note how the arm that the rack & pinion attaches to is straight as opposed to the curved one in the 95 pic above.
