96+ spindles on a fox

8188 Views 27 Replies 16 Participants Last post by  Mustang5L5
I've read so much different info that I'm not sure what to think.

I purchased 97 Gt spindles, hubs, brakes. I want to install them with 00 mustang GT wheels. They are 17x8.

Will I need a bumpsteer kit to get the toe back in line?

Is anyone else using these spindles on a stock k member?

Any input?

BTW my car is an 89 5.0

I have read that page on MM. I know they "should and would" but I've also seen others who say it's not so.

I was hoping for someone who's using these parts to chime in.

thankyou for reading:replying to my post, none the less
So, it sounds like you've done a lot of reading, and you're aware of the options, and you're aware that opinions conflict. That leaves us with either A) You need to know whose opinion to believe, or B) You don't care, you just want to be told you've made a good purchase decision even if you haven't.

You've already been given the answer to A), and if you've read it, you'll understand why a bumpsteer kit isn't a great solution etiher. You're not likely to get the answer to B) in this particular forum.
I was more concerned with having enough adjust on the factory tie rod to adjust my toe, that is the biggest reason for considering a bumpsteer kit.

I know that in a perfect world these aren't the best parts and that I could have made a "BETTER PURCHASE" but I'm looking for feedback from those who have used these parts to tell me, either
A: the bumpsteer isn't that bad
B: I hate driving it and I re-did it with 95 spindles

MFE, I've read a lot of your posts and I respect your opinion. I'm open to suggestions and I'd like to know what you think. If you think I should scrap these parts and start over then maybe that's what I should do. If I should take these and wait to install with a k member kit, maybe I'll save up and do that.
You will have plenty of adjustment with toe no need to worry about that. As far as alignment is it ideal probably not but really nobody knows how bad it is until you get it together and align and check bump steer, every car is different.

I think you should get some 94-95 spindles and hang on to these ones until you get a K-member.
will do, thankyou
I might be able to solve your dilemma. I have a set of '94-'95 spindles that are only a few years old (came in my M2300K kit) that never saw rain, just the track and my garage (a little surface rust). No bearings, hubs. or dust shields on them, which are easily transferred from your existing spindles (you'll need a new seal and retainer nut as they are throw away items- I think I still have the new dust shields in the envelope they came in, I'd have to check). I went to the '96 and ups when I put on my MM k-member.

If you want them, they're for sale. Just PM me.
dilemma solved......payment sent....

now, what to do with the rear?
So umm....whatcha going to do with those 96+ spindles you just took off? :D

how about $115 shipped in lower 48?
