I had spindles on my truck for a while but went back to springs and now have lower control arms.
The spindles pushed out my wheels but not by the same amount on each side. No idea why they were different. with springs or the arms the same wheels never had an issue.

Sorry about that. Funny it won't let me post the link. But I'll attach the picture. It's not mine. I captured it from the net.

that one isnt bad compared to how mine looked.
I wish I had taken pictures.
Funny thing is that McGaughys told me they never heard of anything like it before.
The drivers side was a little worse than that picture, passenger side you could see the first row of tread. my wheels were 22x9.5 with a 19mm offset.

I don't get how they can say something like that when it seems that everyone who has used their product has had that issue

Here are my before/after pics of McGaughy spindles. The front track width is now 1.25" wider than the rear. Can anyone verify the front track width with stock 20's? (inside of wheel to inside of other wheel) I measure 59" rear and 61.25" front.

stock spindles, stock 20's...


McGaughys spindles, stock 20's...


I asked my GF to snap the before and after pics--She didn't get the exact same angle, but you can still see a difference.

At first i didn't and was really happy about it, but now that the suspension has settled it shifted about 1/2 over which sucks. I plan on going to the 4 Wheel Parts store here in town and having them help me fix it. I've read other people fixing it by cutting tie rod ends and making them shorter, I'd rather not go that far so I'm going to see about getting a new bracket fabbed up for the panhard bar.
