Chassis / spindle size

am buiding a new front axle and was wondering how long the spindle should be, im using a 5/8" spindle, wont be running hubs or brakes at this time, but want them long enough for future update to hubs and possibly brakes, and how are the brakes attached to the spindle, do they use a keyway? have a milling machine so adding that is not a problem! thanx a bunch guys, really helpful forum!!

thanks for the info, guess i should of read a little more on the topic, if i was to tilt the top of the axle back a few degrees what would be a good starting point, or is it just trial and error, or is it really necessary for improved handling!  thanks alot!
