Default Spindle question

Okay I got a '98 2wd 4dr and will be ordering a Belltech 3/4 drop with 2" spindles and 1" coils up front and of course 4" blocks in the rear. I am planning on doing the drop myself with some help from a few mechanic buddies. Question is with the spindles, would I need to get new bushings when I do the swap or just leave the factory ones in there? Any input is appreciated.

Thanks
Burt

Double check that you are getting Belltech 2102 spindles and not the S10 pieces. Also, it's a general consensus not to run anything over a 3" block. Wheel hop starts becoming an issue.

I'm not sure what bushings you are talking about. The spindles don't have bushings.

The bushings that attach the spindles to the front sway bars and such. I looked up underneath it the other day and it looks like there is only one bushing but I may just be seeing things and it really isnt attached to the sway bars.

But I had no idea about running more than a 3" block in the back. I will definately look into that. Thanks alot

Default spindle

the bushings on the sway bar links are fine if your only doing spindles and 1'' coil. as long as your not changing the height by 2" on the coil or more you wont need new sway bar links with new bushings. I put on a 3.5" lift spindle and didnt have to change the sway bar link. But when I got the lift coils I had to get longer sway bar links.
