    just got these 2.5 inch drop spindles made by catfish. they are bad ass and look indestructible. they keep all correct geometry and stock ball joint. if you have any questions about them send me a pm.

    tacoma spindles are made of cast steel not pot metal or cast iron so it makes it ok to weld on as long as u can make penetration and are confident in your welds. heres a couple pics of the truck, ihavnt got the spindles on yet though. its currently laid out on a ball joint flip
