So i destroyed a brand new 5 lug tacoma spindle only to come to a final conculsion....... I cant use any of the stock parts not even the hub. It has preloaded bearings internally. I wouldnt be able to sell them without puting the bearing together first and then if i dont get the preload right you can wear out your bearings very quick............ So that road is leadng no where. But dont worry i havent given up yet i have looked into another way of building this lift spindle.

Yes I definitely would build a lift spindle for a 6 lug but I need to finish up the lift spindle for the 5 lug. Then I'll get cracking on it.
