EMPI drop spindles are brand new units, not re-manufactured old cores! CNC machined to exact tolerances. These forged drop spindles feature 1/4" outwards offset. Clearance is usually not an issue. These spindles are the first step to a brake system upgrade while giving you the built-in ability to lower your car an automatic 2 1/2" just by bolting them on. Ball joint spindles require 69-on style outer tie rod ends.
Uses original steering geometry so the ride and handling of the car is not negatively effected.
