Are these still being produced? I have a 6" Rough Country kit on my 2004 NBS Sierra 4x4... going to a FTS 7-9" kit soon, do you have a set that will work for these applications>?

on second look those appear to be cognito not ffr, unless someone has messed with the stock ffr hardware. if they are cognito, the small side of the spindle needs reaming slightly since they use 1/2" threads not 12mm like ffr's, and stock
