  • <FT> Trade good modified spindles for damaged

    I've got a pair of modified spindles here....they were done by GC as is clear to see in the pics. They're in fabulous shape, pretty much perfect I'd say. The housings are stock length, not shortened. I'd like to trade these for preferrably damaged housings. I need to send in this pair for an AST spindle build which means I'll be cutting off the tubes. I'd rather keep these good parts in service and work with damaged parts if possible.

    My requirements are that the spindle itself be good. I don't care about the housing at all...bent, crushed, rusty...doesn't matter. But the spindle MUST be in great shape - the entire cast part. No rust, no damage, no scoring of any kind on the bearing surface.

    I need to have this all done by the end of this week as I need to get them over there. Please email or contact me if you are interested. They are NOT for sale so please don't ask.

    See pics........













    Cheers.

        Hey-- I've got a pair of housings that suffered a bit of additional positive camber on the drivers side as a result of a spin on R-compound tires. Tiny bit of separation where the tube enters the knuckle/spindle. No damage to the spindles at all, but I'm in a jam none-the-less. If you'd like to work something out shoot me a pm or call at 704-779-9026 any time.

        Cheers,

        Ryan

            How is that possible? Are these parts that weak? Or did you hit a kerb in the process?

              The "damage" is ever-so-slight. Less than 1mm of separation where the tube enters the knuckle. That's still good enough for +1-1.5 degrees of camber in this case. I've seen this issue a good few times on race cars. Not necessarily a weak component (not at all) just a weak point. Lots of local BMW CCA, NASA, etc. BMW guys reinforce that area for that particular reason as a preventative measure. But of course, something has to give..

              I apologize for the quick O/T-- will not happen again.
