Re: lift spindle snouts
he's talking about the snout, not the entire spindle. the snout is the silver part sticking out of the spindle like a dude with a hard on.
while you can't see much of a difference, if you take measurements you will find that on a fabtech spindle, the snouts are thinner in crucial areas that cause them to bend and break. i have no experience with the doetsch spindles, but if you have the ability to do it, it can't hurt.
you put your stock spindle on the press, and push the snout out through the back of the spindle (side that's facing the inside of the truck when installed). on the doetsch, there may be a screw or something holding their snout in (i know some have it), remove the screw, press the snout out the back, and then flip the spindle over and press the stock snout in.
