Default Re: Raised Spindles for 55-57 Chevys

i have 3 " lowering spindles on mine , and they kick the wheel outward 1 1/2 and they are a two piece design , im thinking if you took a stock spindle , cut off the axle part , drill a hole where you want , like two inches downward , heat up the spindle and freeze the new axle , and i believe you can buy these separete , and press that bad boy in there ! weld it up and there you go ! just a little work , not rocket science !

That's what I was going to comment on. If you clock the C type wrong you never get the camber right. Same goes for the Alum spacer ones if you go way to high with tall springs.

What about the wheel cylinder/upper backing plate bolt? Not to mention the mess match hole below for the backing plate and or caliper bracket if you go disc brake.
