Spacers + Spindles = Help!

Ok, so I have 17x9 Raceline Renegades that have 5.0 backspacing. Camburg Spindles require at least 4.5 inches of backspacing to fit the 4" spindles. If I get the Spidertrax wheel spacers, will the spindles fit? Also, will the spindles be a better ride than the Revtek I have on now?

The spindles will provide a MUCH better ride than the RevTek spacers. If you wanted to go the extra mile and not spend much more, you could couple the spindles w/ a set of 5100s up front and leave them at the stock setting. This would greatly improve your ride over stock.

Wow good idea. I was thinking about removing the Revtek spacer and installing the stock springs but now you got me thinking twice...

Just removing the spacer would be a hell of an improvement. Im sure you noticed the harsh ride after it was installed.

The stock non-TRD shocks (Aisin) are crap IMO. So an upgrade to the 5100s while you have everything pulled apart wouldn't be a bad idea. You can pick up a pair from Sonny at DSMS for about 172 bucks shipped to your door. Can't beat that.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

They will allow more room for alignment, but they are not required.
