re: How To: 3" Doetsch Spindle Install

and if they are fabtech, did they come in 3" and 3.5" variants? Did I get the taller of the two?
notice the part number on my spindles and in the link above for the doetsch ones.... what the heck?
Those are the same spindles I just got from WheelsNParts. I know this thread is kinda old, but I'm having trouble with the set I just got. Does anyone know if the EDGE spindles are different from the coil spring lift spindles other that the whole at the top being a larger diameter?(Thinking maybe they sent me spindles for the torsion bar set-up)
I'm totally new to lifting a 2WD, so forgive me if I sound like a noob. I had no idea I would have to cut out some material from the LCA and the spindle. I think that's pretty crazy and the company I bought them from should tell the customers that modifications will need to be done to install their spindles.
