hahahaha... well well.. Sitting in front of in n out last night at the mini meet, i for the first time saw my fj from a far since returning from pismo. Definitely could tell my right spindle is just slightly bent. I thought i had just knocked some weights off the wheel but the vibration happens between 35-68mph!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Time to replace BOTH just to play it safe.

I know someone out there has some spindles left over from a 6" lift! come on.. come on! someones got them!!!




The cause... x6 or 7 :D

If you hit hard enough to bend the front knuckles and cause vibrations, I'd suggest at least checking for freeplay in the wheel bearings, at they are the first to obsorb the stress. My guess is the vibration your feeling is coming from there.

I hope the bearings aren't shot.. i'm sure that's not a cheap fix :mad:

Well i got a source for the spindles. Hopefully i can tear the front end down next weekend and inspect everything (bearing, spindles, diff mounts.. all that goodness).

good luck with finding some new/used ones Dom. And make sure you gusset them while your replacing them.
