I just found them, on the site (looked a little harder) It looks like they are getting 4" of lift for use with a 31x10.50 tire, part number is FTS4184-7 if anyone is interested. I am not very impressed with fabtechs suspension kits either, I am just looking for something to hold me over until I have the cash for long travel, If another company made spindles I would rather pick those up, anyone know of a shop that makes custom spindles?
seems like these would solve the droop versus compression travel issues on long travel yotas...i'm definitely interested....i'm calling tomorrow, i'll letcha all know what i find... http://www.fabtechmotorsports.com/applications/spindles/spindles.html
i know everyone looks down on the blue, but if it gets me some droop and some extra clearance......
This would solve us not having to hack the front of your truck off like we had to with mine... LoL remember that day.
For those of you that don't here is a quicky.
Went to Garys to look into building an engine cage as we took off the glass hes on one side of the truck and I grabbed the sawzall and started cutting he runs over and gave me the look of you S O B then we built it that night and it came out great. - nothing beat the satisfaction of watching the whole OEM body from the cab forward fall to the ground.
yeah, so much for you making it to ocotillo that weekend.....but it was a lot of fun, and went surprisingly well....
this spindle is possibly the answer to my yota prayers. i can hopefully finally ditch the body lift and still run 33's without having to make firewall modifications, relocate the clutch m/c, or totally cut out the inner fenderwells. all kinda tough on the daily driver, with limited time/ down time to do the work. i'd still hafta redo the shock hoop/engine cage up front, as it wont clear the master cylinder if(when) the body drops back down to the frame rails once again, but that's still less work than having to redo it and all the other stuff. and i still get to uncrank the torsions (for now, coilovers are still in the future) and gain some droop that i dont have...this just keeps getting more appealing in my head. anyone wanna rain on my parade and make me realize something i'm missing?
and let me be the first to say, that if it's painted blue, i know it'll get like twice as much travel as before!!!
All i gotta say is where the hell were these a year and a half ago when i needed them! Now Im running a kit that comes with spindles......but back in the days of upper arms and 31s hittin, it would have been nice.
In my case with fiberglass being the limiting factor(same front fenders your running Austin) I think it would be more of a snap\crackle pop with all the fiberglass dust goin in the air. Thats the only place it would hit on the front of my truck.
Well we extended the wheelbase 4" as well so that helped. BUt before that happened I had to notch back the firewall to get them to fit. And Im not sure from stock (IE PIVOT POINTS) but, my truck is 6" wider then stock per side.
and Fish, you did so do some notching of your firewall. I remember the 3 grinding dicks that we went through.
Anyone have a yota on 37"s? But not a skyhigh lifted piece, I'm talking long travel and squated. That would be sick.
The funniest picture I've seen, is a 35" baja sitting next to a stock 2wd toyota wheel bearing. I don't have it but if you see it you'll wonder "how the hell do they not break?" It blows my mind that they last!
