just make sure your bearings are cleaned and properly maintained.

Do you have a body lift also? If no, How about tire fitment, you said you are running 35's, do your tires rub any?

x2.

I've been through one set of spindles already because I didn't properly maintain my bearings and my snout snapped right off. I've been keeping an eye on them and I'm going to pack them up again tomorrow.

Yeah he is stepside that is why he can fit it. You be fleetside I doubt you would be able to. I am running the 5.5" fabtech lift and am pretty close with 33's. I would defiantly not want to put 35's on. I would be fine in the front. But not the rear.


Here is some pics. Same place same spot just one with my stepside and a current with my fleetside.
