HELP!! Where to get stock spindles.

Mike's fabtech spindles took a **** just like mine did. the exact same spot and side. Please point in the direction to get a pair of stock spindles. Ford wants way too much.

That sucks. There is a few parts yards on Benoist Farms Road off of Southern. Call and ask them if they have any Rangers in there and take it from there. There is also a salvageyard up near the Vet. Hospital. They had a to of Fords there last time I was there, but that was about 3 years ago, may be worth checking out.

i just got rid of mine not long ago, they sat in the garage for over 4 years lol. i dont get rid of things, but seeing as i am 4x4 now dont think i'd ever need them again.


edit: just did a quick search, found lots of them local, ranging from 45 to 110 bucks each

I was just at both of those junkyards a couple weeks ago. Neither had any Ranger Edge's or really anything good at all. One of them is pretty nice, the other one next to it with the dirt parking lot is even worse then the U-Pull-It down here which is pretty scary lol.
