not sure who your going through but check out www.summitracing.com
spindles $149.99 pr
blocks $25.99 pr
shocks $36.99 ea
all belltech

since you have a xtreme you should be at total drop of about 3.5/4.5 with that set up.

hey guys that bumpstop bracket removal seems like a little more than I can do in my parking lot....would It be better than nothing to cut off the bumpstop its self, or does the axel sit on the bumpstop when lowered?.....the nitrogen nitro drop shocks I got should keep it from moving as much correct?(take more or the impact in a shorter distance)

Go with the Belltech spindles & blocks from Summit or Jegs, You dont NEED the shocks, your ZQ8 shocks will work fine, I have them on mine. Be sure to cut out the rear bumpstop brackets, and use a angled block, or pinion shims. Also, I cut the brackets off with a sawzall, it takes time, but isnt hard to do.

hey guys when you swap out spindles do you have to repack the bearings, or atleast pack it as much as you can when they are in the rotor? what grease will mix with the factory........
