How do you keep the front suspension from collasping with a couple hundred extra hp and tq?




Pictures are of Clint Cannon's truck. You'll also notice the tie rods are beefed up somewhat in the center section.Edited by: y2kboti

How are the tie rods connected to the spindle? Mine load from the bottom. Being able to flip them would level my tie rods with cranked Tbars. Or is this a 1/2 ton spindle? They do load from the top.

Jeli those are the replacement spindle that come standard with that lift kit. Looks like an RCD but they are all the same. I'm not sure what wheels he is using but the backspacing on them pushes the wheel out far enough that he has clearance and can flip the tie-rod right side up. For some reason GM mounts the tie-rods right side up on 1/2 tons and upside down on HDs.
