Getting Bigger Tires Under a 2WD in 20 Minutes
A really quick and easy way to get a little extra height and some bigger tires on the front end of a 2WD truck is to add a lift spindle. A lift spindle bolts in place of the factory spindle, but drops the point where the unit bearing attaches three to four inches (depending on what company and what truck application).
A spindle lift like this requires no shock replacement, and you can use whatever suspension (long-travel or stock) that you’d like. If the factory spindle fits, then so will a Maxtrac spindle.
The Max Trac spindles are made of heavy-duty ductile iron and are considerably larger than the factory units while still bolting in without any modifications. That’s why our friend at SMP Fabworks added a set of MaxTrac spindles to his already modified Titan suspension to get a few more inches of lift. Maxtrac has a number of 2WD applications available, and the Titan spindles bolted directly onto his modified suspension just like the factory spindle did.
