What brand spindles did you go with this time? What other brands have you used in the past & are there any differences between them build & durability wise?

This is my 3rd fabtech spindle... and I've had camburg. The camburg was much stronger since it was fabricated and REALLY beefy... the fabtechs are just cast.

Back end is getting shackles so that will bring it up an inch and a half or so and new tires will raise it up a tiny bit more because these tires are woooooooorn.

Other than that I dont think so. I'm thinking about going with 35's...but will probably end up with 33's again.

I did make up my mind... it involves an F350 and a 7.3

Last I remember it was a 97 F350 with a Cummins swap or 94 Miata with a V8. Sounds like he is as indecisive as I am with cars.

Its still the 97 350 and once the 7.3 goes... a cummins would go in.

And the miata.... I still want, but that wont happen for a while



In other news.... going outside to put on the traction bars and shackles
