So, how can I find out which spindle I have? Probably the easiest way is to turn your steering wheel all the way to the left (drivers side), should look like the image above, find your spindle. If it is dark, a little rusty looking it is a cast iron spindle. If it is silvery or shiny it is a aluminum spindle. If you have any doubt get another opinion or ask you mechanic.
So what’s better than a 2″ Calmax Control Arm set for the front? How about a 3 inch Calmax Control Arm set. With this kit you can get a 3 inch front and 5″ rear drop that is completely aligned will and suffers no loss of travel in the front with no worries about will clearance issues.
These Calmax arms will give you a 3 inch drop and retain factory travel and factory alignment specifications. They do it by replacing both upper and lower control arms! Simply remove factory arms and replace with your Calmax arms and you’re done!
The rear kit consists of an axle flip kit featuring those DJM exclusive pinion adjustable axle brackets and new shackle hangers that invert the shackle mounting point allowing the longer shackles included to lift the rear end to the five-inch drop position.
(A clever way to get around those welded hangers!)
