So I was just looking at spindles seeing what exactly ebay has to offer. I don't believe I'll be going with springtech spindles. I can't say for sure that this article refers to springtech but who knows...

A Note From CST About Spindles - Nissan Titan Forum

"company located in Anaheim / Orange County, (California) is selling an imitation spindle" ... etc.

http://shop.suspensionmax.com/ <<springtech located in Anaheim, CA.

As far as fabtech spindles go...I'm having a hard time figuring out what's going on...All the sites but fabtech have FTS98200-7 for the 01-05 2wd rangers and Fabtech's site has it as FTS98300-7 and every time I see a spindle with their name on it, it's either a different color, or has something different about it...I can't get a picture of the light/royal blue ones...these are black but right at the base of the snout they're different. There shouldn't be any reason for them to be different, right? I may have to go with Doetsch spindles just to avoid fake fabtech's.





and yeah, I've heard of FT spindles snapping...but I think that's across the board with all companies within reason.

I bought mine from the anaheim place and had no probs. They are all just cast metal spindles...not much of anything different between them.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Crunchy, suspensionmax' site doesn't show doetsch spindles...they have springtech, but you have doetsch in your sig. You did say that Doetsch makes the spindles and suspensionmax is one of their suppliers?

I think I'm going to give suspensionmax a call, if they don't "check out" IMO then for 20 bucks more it looks like I can get doetsch spindles from their own website.

so it's the new snouts that fail? check this forum out:

what about Camburg spindles? they're awesome! I'm wondering if just the spindles would work or if I'd have to spend the 1500-1800 for the works...wouldn't go that route if I had to buy everything. But I may know someone with a set of race series camburg spindles. hehe

let me know if you know if they'll work or not. I emailed camburg about it. we'll see what they say
