Im looking in to replacing my Belltech spindles with another brand that doesnt push the wheel out. A guy has a set of Summit brand 2" drop spindles and i was wandering if they push the wheels out at all?? Any one used these??

you're trippin. it doesn't move the wheel out at all. Why would you go and replace the Bel Tech spindles with some cheapies? Just curious.

werd, just make sure its aligned and you should have no problems, you might lose some turning radius but thats it

Yes, some spindles do push the wheels out more. They are much more prevalent in lift spindles or cheap spindles, but the issue does exist.

even if some spindles do this, Belltech would not be the ones...

stick with those Belltechs and just go get an alignment

I have been running the Belltechs for a year and a half, it was aligned after the drop. The older Belltechs do push the wheels out. Now they have a new part number that fixes this problem. I would just rather buy a set of used DJM or Summit spindles fromt someone.

Sac-up and buy new, you never know what those parts have been through. It's not worth savin a couple of bucks. Order them model specific & you know they will fit & work correctly.
