    Looking for stock height spindles. The idiot that I bought my car from let the wheel bearings eat into the spindles. I need to get new ones but all I am finding are drop spindles, cant find stock height spindles anywhere. Does anyone have a link to to new spindles? I dont want anything used/re manufactured. Thanks for your help.

    No, those are 1st gen parts.

    Used 2nd gen spindles are easy to find. There are only 2 variants the early ones and the very late ones that use a different outer bearing. I forget the year of the change maybe 1980. You can use either one but you have to use the right rotors and bearings.

    And then another option are the B body spindles which can give you a 12" rotor if you buy the right ones. But that's another discussion.

    Yep need 2nd gen spindles. This is for a 70. The reason I don't need drop spindles is I already have adjustable height springs and shocks.

    I can find new 2" drop spindles, will that work with adjustable coilover QA1 shocks and springs? Im running 245/40/17 on the front and dont want the tires to rub but I want to bring it down from the stock height.

    79-81 use A6 inner and A3 outer bearings
