Drop Spindles

Any of u Ontarions have drop spindles, or thinkin of getting em? Ive been researching and so far think they are the best way to go (for the front)... Than 1.5 or 1.75 springs in the rear? I want the 2 inch drop... Think it will be sweet... Than the 1.5 should be good for the rear altho i want the 1.75, but cant find anyone selling em...

Drop spindles keeps stock riding quality and lowering springs modifies it or something.... Screws up cambers and some ****... Im not too educated but from whut im gathering, drop spindles are the way to go.. Also they give u a 2 inch drop instead of 1.25...

Dude I havent been able to get ****... Im keeping my car tho now.. I luv it... Question for ya Stroked-Z.. How are those 4.10 gears? I have 3.23's right now and I'm thinkin about going 4.10? Would u recommend it? I have the 700R4 with the OD and manual valve body (have to shift manually) so it would be kinda cool to have the 4.10s.. Prolly around 3000 rpm at 100km/h or less?

Drop spindles eliminate most bump steer problems that come up when you lower the car with shorter springs.

No prob Smoka!

4:10's are excellent gears IF you got tires that'll hook them escpecially with your 1st gear on that 700R4.

At 100Km/h i was at 3300rpm with a 27.5" tall tire (275-60-15)

If you have a 245-50-16 tire, you'll prob be turning just a tad more in your 3rd gear (1:1)

But man, you hook once with them & I GUARANTEE YOU there will be no regrets of spending a few more $ on fuel!
