Wait... so you changed out major suspension components without knowing for sure if your wheels were going to fit back on or not?


ballsy.

I dont see the problem, my issue was i was unsure which is why i have had them for almost a month and did not put them on. I called fabtech and The dude said he "thinks" they will fit. So really the only way to find on was to try it. If it didnt work i woulda had to put the stock ones on. I did the work and it only takes about 45 minutes a side including repackin the bearings. It works fine and looks good.

thanks i actually was tryin to put the spacers in at the same time but i was freezin and the coils were fightin me like crazy so i said eff it am not doin it. im gunna leave the back alone but i will be getting the wheels and ires this week hopefully, 235-75-15's on 15x7 pro comp 1069's. the suspension i think is done for now until i pick up a used TC kit. not really a big fan of Fabtech but i went with the spindles cuz i was so damn low i would scrape my bumper on curbs when i park.. so in other words i have some coil spacers for sale, lol...

Nice! You might have to cut some of the plastic off your front bumper. Are you talking about a used LT kit? Good deal, you can find some every so often for cheap.

I asked Fabtech if they would fit too.. They tell you no for liability purposes. He said "we can't condone or recommend it but we have heard of people using even stock 14" wheels with our spindles"

It looks like our builds are pretty much identical

yeah he wouldnt say yes which is what i wanted to hear so i figured liability or something... kinda funny i even ave the JVC stereo.. My whole goal is to have more of a "truck" not a prerunner or anything but take it up in the mountains out in the desert and do what i want... should work good.

Both of you guys should go out and purchase some moog lower ball joint brackets now so you won't get stranded in the middle of nowhere.

To my knowledge the ball joint brackets are toyota only. Moog makes ball joints but not the brackets. But i have spares and im gunna talk to a machinist to see if i can get a nice beefy bracket set built.
