How big are these and what's the minimum wheel size required?
how much drop do these provide?I have one set of the spindle spacers left. Ican include the hardware, 4X grade 10.9 Bolts and 4X Nordlock washersshipped to you for $65. I would like someone to purchase who has done thelower ball joint flip so they can undo it and notice the difference with these.Anyhow, let me know.
The spindle spacer will lower the vehicle roughly 2.5 inches with no modification to spring or shock. I have the QA1 coil over setup and can adjust from there. I have just finished making some tabs to relocate the brake line mount a little higher also that I can throw in as well complementary. Let me know. I am currently working on upper control arms as well.how much drop do these provide?
I used to have the ball joint flip and QA1s, then i unflipped the ball joints and just turned the QA1s down a tad more...
Yes, you will need to address the upper ball joint. You will need to have it positioned in its neutral position at ride height. You will need to cycle the front suspension, with the spring out and shock in, to make sure it can travel freely through its range of motion without binding the upper ball joint.Are any changes needed for the upper arms in order to run these or is the upper bj flipped as well?
Excellent. Thanks! Please update this thread with the results!It was me who ordered your spacer for 18" on ebay, you shipped it fast. I replaced my rack and pinion and my tie rods are at an extreme angle. I cant wait to put them in and unflip the balljoint. I hope the ride height stays the same. Thank you.
Thanks for the info!Yes, you will need to address the upper ball joint. You will need to have it positioned in its neutral position at ride height.

You want to correct the caster as well. 7 to 10 degrees degrees works well This will also help stabilization at high speeds. Notice caster on drag race cars.
People have modified the stock control arm by cutting and re welding it at the correct angle. People have also done something similar to a ball joint flip and mounted the upper control arm below the ball joint and added spacers in the middle section of the control arm to take up the space where the ball joint was originally. Or you can try to find and order a set of upper control arms.
I am in the process of making more similar to the ones I custom made for my truck. I have the fixture from that set up so the geometry is set. So I will update the post with that once I have them ready to sell.
Notice the upper ball joint angle at full Jounce. Image also shows available spacers for 17 in wheels.

I plan on using a different configuration for the bushings but here is the one I made for my truck

If anyone else interested in upper control arms let me know So I can get more motivation to make a production run.
