Spindles Spindles, Which Spindles!

Submitted on 2011/05/04 at 7:34 pm

I’ve got a 97 c1500 std cab long box and am looking for a 2″ drop spindle and 4″ shackle kit but you guys don’t seem to list a kit for my application. Whats the difference between the 88-91 92-99 front spindles? I do have the bigger rotors so will the ext cab ones work?
Thanks Simon.

It’s a good question with an easy answer. The 88-91 standard-cab C1500 uses one spindles part number and all other 88-98 C1500 use another. There’s no strength or performance difference between them and their the same price. Just a slight dimensional difference which every now and then get someone in trouble!
Here’s a link to the parts you need from the Factory Store!
