They could work for me, all I was asking about was making some that drop the upper b/j mount without building the drop into the spindle, he doesn't wanna get into it, so I will go another route and raise the uca frame mounts instead

does not matter to me, i can do the fab work to raise the uppers on the frame, but I currently have more money than time (even though I have very little of either) so I thought I would ask about dropping the upper b/j mount on a set of spindles instead, but I will just find some time and do my own thing and raise the uppers and the rack....no biggie....just ask your self proclaimed taco/suspension guru, I know a thing or two about fabricating vehicle suspensions and am not new to these concepts

oh, and get that idiot in your avatar to squeeze the damn trigger already....sissy



???(lately on here, I'm just not seeing much reason to bother posting anymore...too many armchair engineers....I think I'll just stick to compliments where deserved and worthwile conversations with people that I know, or can actually understand what I am trying to convey, because when it gets beyond the most basic of modifications to the physics of suspension geometry, most just don't get it)???


WOW .... u guys ..

Im just trying to offer a part that works and that can accommodate different needs of different trucks at a good price....

I also want to say thank you to everyone that ordered parts over the last few weeks ..!!! im getting all the orders out this week

Re: Drop spindle holidy special..

OGspacePimp.....for what you are looking for all you have to do is pull your upper arms off and drill new holes one inch higher then the factory holes on the frame mounts (use 1/2" fine thread bolts to mount the anrms in the new holes ) .. this mod will change the geometry just enough to give you what you are looking for without messing anything up ..
I do it to airride trucks to help cure the camber problems that these trucks get when you lay them out .
If you are going to lift the rack to wrote up a thread a while back on how to do it ...

Re: Drop spindle holidy special..

I have a bj flip and a 2" belltech spring in front and I am wearing tires due to camber like a mofo, my question is, can I still go back and unflip my bj's so I can go with your 3" spindles? I know I had to drill bigger holes on the t/c rod, will that give me a problem putting stuff back????

also I have18" wheels will I have enough clearance?

and last how do I go about ordering them?

At the end everything will be ok, and if it's not ok then its not the end.

Yes .. you would need to unflip your balljoints in order to run a drop spindle,drilling out the holes one the strut rod shouldnt give any problems if you are now using 1/2" bolts ... a 2.5" drop is as big as you can go with an 18" rim un let you are running a wheel with almost no offset ...
