Install our drop spindles to get your truck lower without loosing ride quality, plus you can maintain steering geometry!
So, what is a drop-spindle?
Your front wheels mount to
the wheel hub. The wheel hub mounts to the spindle. The
spindle, or steering
knuckle, is rotated from side to side to allow your vehicle to steer by
of the steering linkage/tie rods. The difference between an
and a drop-spindle is the location of the shaft that protrudes from the
the spindle. Drop-spindles relocate the
shaft to a higher position, typically 2-3 inches higher than the
this allows your wheel to be higher in the fender well, thus lowering
Installing drop-spindles allows you to continue to use the vehicles factory spring and shocks. Everything that mounted to the original spindle will also mount to the drop-spindle in the same locations (ie. brake caliper brackets, tie rods/steering arms, etc). Steering geometry is retained to allow for proper alignment and ride quality is not sacrificed. If you want to get even lower than the 2-3 inches that the drop-spindles provide, the installation of a lowering spring or air bags is always a possibility.
The drop spindles we offer are made by DJM. These high quality spindles are machined on computer controlled mills and test fitted with wheel bearing and brake calipers before leaving the DJM facility in order to provide you with a vehicle specific, perfect fit!
