Yeah i have Springtech/Doetsch spindles out in the garage ready to go on. I don't off road and I'm only running 31s on aluminum rims. I think it will be fine but I would like some piece of mind. Is there some way to trade the snout from my stock spindles onto the Doetsch spindles? Or are they welded in there?

Then wear out the drivetrain with lots of truck pulls lol



And it's not like the knuckles on the 4x4s don't snap off and send tires flying occasionally. Someone on here with a superlift grenaded a hub and lost a wheel. It's the risk we all take by running over-sized tires on aftermarket suspensions or even on stock suspensions. They aren't designed to handle the stress. Plain and simple.
