Bent Spindle..

My right side rotor kept getting scared up real bad.. i replaced all the parts of the brakes trying to fix it.. Tonight i turned it all the way right and looked under with a flash light and the spindle looks bent pushing the caliper mount into the rotor ?!?! anyone heard of this before ??

well if you wanted to lift now is the perfect time since you can get a set of lift spindles for 300 from www.suspensionmax.com

for the lift you would need spindles for the front and AAL and shackels for lifting the rear... you can get everything you need for under 400 from www.summitracing.com and www.suspensionmax.com ... as far as the part numbers go for the rear parts do a search on the site for AAL and chevy shackels... good luck
here is one with a 3 inch spindle lift and 33 inch tires

Well id rather not raise it any really.. I dont go off road very often . And a lift with stock size tires would look like **** in my opinion... Sucks i spent the money on calipers pads rotors and brake lines.. and it being something like a bent spindle. Least i got a set of bendix pads out of it..
