spinlde installation questions

I bought a used set of fabtech spindles off a member on here lil bit ago. I noticed fabtech's instructions have a part list with a bunch of harware. Can I not reuse my factory hardware to install them? I plan on replacing cotter pins but hoping I can reuse my bolts.


I also bought some #1 bars to install at the same time. From what i read i wont have any problems except allignment. I plan on buying the camber kit, so other than that will I be good?

For leveling the rear will just a AAL and chevy shackle do the trick?

just a add a leaf with the spindle will probably level the truck (unless your level right now). The chevy shackle will bring the rear up to a more factory rake.

Also where do you get #1 bars. I dont know anything about these but I want to replace my soft F bars

You can reuse all your old hardware, except the cotter pins but you already know that. It is suggested to use new castle nuts but I never do. I'd suggest replacing all your wheel bearings, seals, washers, nuts, and dust caps(spindle wheel bearing stuff) while installing the new spindles.


AAL and Chevy 2" drop shackle will get you about 1.5" lift out of each.

I also have a body lift in the garage I plan on putting on near the same time. Anyone give me the run down on extras I might need. I would assume brake lines, but what size?
