Torsion 4WD Lift Spindles

OK, I keep reading here that there are no spindles for 4WD Torsion trucks, but superlift and Summit racing list them -

The picture sure looks like a 4WD spindle to me - it has the slot for the lower balljoint!

Anyone have these installed without using the control arms too?

I am going to call superlift on monday to find out.

Sorry, I guess my terminology is where I went wrong - you are correct.

So who is running them?

With the full superlift setup you retain stock control arms but add a drop bracket to relocate your lower CA's. Also the steering could be problematic.

The superlift also maintains stock balljoint and steering angles. This would eff your ball joints right up if they even articulate enough at that.
