Default 2013 ram 1500 2wd spindles

The spindles for the 2013 2wd 1500 non air ride rams are the same going all the way back to 2002 so if you are running dropped spindles on your older rams they will fit the new ram....

For those that have seen and installed the spindles, is there room to machine the surface to get the wheel to sit in farther? Or if anyone has one they haven't installed yet if you could get some pictures of it.

Thanks.

David

David I think these spindles were made to run a 4-6 drop back in the day and they added a little camber into the spindle to compensate for lowering. Because I run spindles and 2" springs on my 2012 Ram and it looks great (wheels don't stick out)...
