I want to treat my front lawn now before weeds and crabgrass get out of hand.
I'm torn between the liquid products like Spectricide

The only difference between the products is that Spectricide will kill the weeds on contact and the Scotts product will feed your lawn and the time release herbicide will kill the weeds over a period of time and continue to keep weed seeds from sprouting for a few months. I'd use the Spectracide now. In the spring you can use a Scotts product such as Turfbuilder plus Halts. This is a pre emergent herbicide which will keep new weeds from sprouting and it will also feed your lawn. Hope this clarifies things for you.
