Yeah, forgot about that. I was pretty depressed when 2 weeks later I looked under my truck and saw a rusty mess Thanks for reminding me about it, lol.

OK, McG deluxe kit ordered along with Spohn adjustable bar. If I am thinking correctly, I can avoid using the rear bracket and just make the adjustment in the arm itself... correct?

WOW! How disappointing... just got my McG spindle kit. The instructions are horrible. They don't provide the torque specs for reassembly!

Also, what is with "trim the excess ball joint threads"? Another company that really does not care about anything more than selling parts. Very, very disappointed.

Maybe Sunday I'll get to installing it...

So who has the list of torque specs????

Upper Ball Joint:
Lower Ball Joint:
Tie Rod:
Hub to knuckle:
Caliper:

I had a shop put my kit in, so I'm not sure about install specs. I do remember that the shop guy said he had to grind down some of the spindle because it was contacting the ball joints(I think, it contacted something) when you lock the wheels out.

With the spindle kits do you still have to get an alignment like with springs? I would assume that camber stays the same, but toe could be affected.

Incorrect...a panhard bar needs to be level with the ground to work right. Use the bracket.
