I can't comment on that, but I would seriously stay away from these if my truck was heavier than a CC. I shattered my t-bar on one, the other was heavily bent when I took it off. The rears are way to soft and I bottom out. They ride better than my stiff ass Belltech shocks, but not much better.

My big hangup is the ball joints. I've never done them so I have no clue how to move forward

just get all new, oem style LCAs.....WAY easier than trying to punch those damn rivets out.

I had to grind the heads off, drill into the rivet stud and punch them out with an air hammer...HUGE pain in the dick to do.

I assume its a bolt in bj on those. I ordered 3" springs today with shocks to go with the 6" rear. Ill move on to spindles and do a 5/7 by summer

Hope I'm asking in the right thread.
Is there a fix for the early 16" belltech drop spindles?
I'm having braking issues when turning.Anyone else?

Does the pedal go to the floor? If so the brake line might be getting pulled, make sure it has enough slack and is routed correctly.

I remember that day. Yes, the brake line is getting pinched/pulled, get some zip ties and mount it to the UCA. Fuck those spindles BTW if they really are the early ones.

I have ever a 2/4 McG kit on an 05 crew cab. I was told I didn't have to do shocks but I did since they are good to 4/6 which could happen later.
