I'm trying to achieve more strength in the spindles not lift or strongth. Been hearing too many stories about people bending their stock spindles.

Did you get those machined?

I plan on chopping up an extra set I've got to build some lift spindles

I got the first set done for free from a friend of mine. If this spindle works out, I'll have to sit down with him to calculate the cost to produce them.

dude put me down for a set!

EDIT: will the spindles be fabbed ready to go with Engage's LCAs or would you still need to run an adapter?

My spindles are gusseted right now but still have that uncertainty about it holding up to abuse. My last mojave trip, I hit some gnarly ditches and for sure bent something. Its just a matter of time when I'll bend these stock suckers and so I building these before that time comes.

They are waiting for my truck to get back from Cal Mini, so they can use my truck as the mock up. Hopefully, I should get it back this week so they can start on it.
