    Are the stock 2WD and 4WD spindles the same?

    I have seen pictures of both and they look the same but there could be some slight differences that I can't see from a picture.

    I have a bent spindle on my 4WD. There is a guy selling a set of 2WD spindles close to where I live.

    thanks

    i am nearly positive that they are the same. the only difference is that the prerunner ones have a cap where the front drive shaft normally goes thru on the 4x4 ones.

    Lift spindles are only for prerunners. They are talking about the stock spindles.
