Re: Front spindles

Kurt in NJ So how do you know these bargain's are any good? Are you buying them without measuring the inner and outer bearing surface.

Re: Front spindles

Re: Front spindles

Reds 34
I have talked to Brent about how they are fixed but I don't have the capability or the equipment. So I'm looking for someone capable of doing the job or buying a set.

Re: Front spindles

Re: Taxi

Is it possible to connect the "Y" side that goes to the speedometer to the meter?
Can the "Y" be taken apart?
