Lifted 2wd & Bodied 4x4
Well the major differences between the 2wd and the 4wd is the fact that the lower balljoint is flipped between the two, as are the tie rods. At this point I'm not sure if the tie rod will be an advantage (but I'm thinking it will be when using tubular lower arms), but for sure the balljoint is an advantage. It will actually make the spindle more of a 'tall' spindle which makes it so the lower arm doesn't have to come up into the frame as far (and subsequently lessens the difference between the bag plate area of the arm and the straight front leg of the arm). Also, this allows the ability to run a drop spindle which offers a few slight advantages as well. The drop spindle has the wheel pivot center closer to the upper balljoint mount, so it brings the upper arm down in relation to the wheel, easing up on the camber and giving more range on the lift side of the spectrumGlad to hear some updates on this! Sounds like we both are trying to work on our projects!
Can you elaborate how exactly are 2wd spindles better then the stock 4wd ones? They taller or shorter the the 4wd ones?
