yeah, you deffinately get what you pay for on just about anything these days.

you can always try this:

call them up, say your from some bull **** company, tell them you will bring lawyers into this if it comes down to it. bluff your a$$ off if you have to.

And what do you mean 'cheap'? If I remember correctly these spindles weren't 'cheap'...

yeah, thats not right..

on their site though, it says they do not offer refunds, HOWEVER, it clearly states on their site that they will offer an exchange on any part found to be defective.

try calling them again and ask for an exchange for the exact same part and email them the picture. i'll have a hard time believing that they won't do that.

click on the second tab "suspension max" then click on returns

oh, and with those spindles you won't need new wheels, i have the same kind and i ran with the stock edge plus (the wheels i think you have) for a few months. and it says in your profile that you have 32s, it wont look bad if you lift and you dont get bigger tires and stay with what you have. most people run 33s with that lift; another inch on tire isn't worth getting brand new ones (IMO).

I say powertrax no-slip. I had one in my ranger for the last 5 months and i thought it was amazing. I just took it out a few days ago due to the truck being turned back into the dealer (lease ended). I would definately go out and buy another one in a heartbeat.
