What Happened?


Recommended Posts

I felt this topic would be best suited here..So I bought a set of 17" gm steel wheels since I have the Mcgaughys spindles for my winter wheels while my boss 330s get powder coated...Well I was mounting the wheels on my 04 silvy and they dont clear the bottom ball joint bolt. So I trimmed the nipple off the bolt and I can get the wheel on but its butted up against the rim. I trimmed all the way up to the nut so I dont know what to do. Any tips guys or did I miss something? Im pretty heated about the situation because I was supposed to drop off the 330's to get powder coated and these 17s were just going to be temporary. banghead.gif

im not surprised, i have heard nothing but bad things about mcgaughys spindles....

i went with belltech 2" drop spindles, they came with new jam nuts and star washers for the lower ball joint.

my 17" rims fit with lots of room to spare.
