After a long search on the classifieds section on this forum. The spindles been sitting in my apartment for some time since last month. I had my car at the dealership for some fixin n I was out of town for a bit. Got back yesterday, had a good night sleep and finally did the install today.



I still need to take it in for a wheel alignment and camber n caster bolt install. My wheel alignment is out of whack, but I have a local Nissan dealership who agrees to cover parts n labor for the cam bolts after I install the spindles. I do have to pay for the wheel alignment though.

Looks good man. Happy to hear you received all the parts. I just bent/cut the tabs that held the brake line so that it could hang freely. You can also use zip-ties to secure it in place if needed. I would let the suspension hang at full droop and turn the steering wheel side to side to see how much slack you need, then go from there. I didn't need new brake lines.

Time for some bigger tires! :)

Ya that brake line was pretty scary stretched out like that at full drop. Leaning towards getting longer brake lines, but for now its okay when the truck is on the ground. Truck mostly used for daily driving and I only have about a 2 months left til I have to go for deployment. So tires n wheels combo would be next year :)

NICE!
Looks like there's still room before CB contact, more lift! Then you'll really need longer lines.

I did swap out a 2" spacers with the CST spindles. So if I wanna go the cheapest way and get another lift I suppose I can get longer brake lines and reinstall them spacers :thumbup:. Devius1 I remember you post a pic of your broken endlinks on my other thread. I had to cut one off (driver's side), the nut wouldn't come off.

Looks good. You can't beat spindles for making a 2wd taller. I originally had spacers and added the spidles. I never considered removing the spacers. The two work well together.
