Default Ebay Lift Spindles (review)

Got the ebay lift spindles in for my edge. They look totally different than the ones pictured. I thought the snouts would be pressed in but they are simply bolted in. Looks like they were machined in someone's garage, weren't cleaned or painted and burrs all over the holes. They kinda looked rusted but that's because I cleaned them and got them ready for paint, just gonna shoot a couple coats of engine paint to protect from corrosion. Any thoughts on the snouts? I live in south florida and won't be doing any crazy offroading, most stress they'll see will be from speed bumps.

I'll take more pictures and let you know about fitment, once I get them on this weekend

Yeah that's good, I just want to know that they sell the pressed in ones exclusively, and aren't being inconsistent with what they sell.

Check this link out. OP says they are doetsch, look at picture 10, they look identical to mine, even those have the "bolted" snouts. I showed my dad the spindles and he thinks that they are pressed and bolted. I will be calling the place I got them on Monday.

THE SNOUTS ARE A LARGER ON THE NEW SPINDLES AND THE WHEEL BEARINGS DON'T FIT . got everything installed and was about to put the rotor back on and noticed... New snout dia is 22.5 and the old is about 19.1....scrambling around town to find new bearings now....

Smart.

Don't go cheap when comes to suspension or engine parts.

Try looking for 97-03 f150 bearings. That's the snout size on those trucks

why? ford and many other companies use bolt on snouts on TTB rangers, broncos, f150s, explorers, and more for years with no problems.
