number 1: this should be a classified ad.... a want ad...

number 2: good effin' luck finding them for that price. Even that new price just sounds a way under par for quality. Fabtech's for 300 with shocks....haha...right. Not new, but used and most likely abused...

number 3: what the heck are "spindle pins"??

Where are you getting those prices? Something about "new" and missing pieces doesn't add up.

LOL...maybe the spindles look like this:



This would mean "I've got spindles, that must means I'm a prerunner!! LETS GO JUMP!!" or "is that nut tight enough? Maybe I should tighten it some more"...

^^ I was thinking something similar, someone broke their spindles and is selling the unit without the snout... but then again he says they are new spindles so I'm extremely curious to say the least.

What spindle brand are the $275 ones? $275 sounds like a really good deal.

You never did answer...what are the spindle pins you are referring to, and why are they missing?

Are these "spindle pins?"

Also, I might have these available soon if the customer changes his mind. Some would say I am close to FABTECH (lol!), and I can't even get those for that price. If the customer changes his mind, I can let these go for $350 w/shocks. -you pay shipping. We're having a hard time getting the ABS to work with these. It's a 2010 problem as they changed the sensor. Send me a PM if interested. They are brand new and haven't seen any miles yet!
