Bent spindle, ohnoes!

Post by Arro » Thu Feb 26, 2009 8:17 pm

I bought a set of rear SRT-4 brakes, complete with knuckes/spindles. So when the rotor and knuckle assembly was bolted in place, I noticed the passenger side was crooked.

Not to worry... by chance, I've had a set of SRT-4 rear knuckle/spindles just chillaxin in the garage on the shelf. So we pulled apart the hub and everything, and this is what we found:

The guy who sold me the parts did say the car was rolled. Boy was it!

The comparison:

Anyways, the brakes are in, and I need to get a rear alignment now. But those of you who have rear SRT-4 brake swaps with stock fronts are right -- it makes a BIG improvement in stopping power :thumbup:

Wow that's a little off. Oh, and by the way - how much did that assembly cost you?

Nah I bought them from some guy who told me the car was rolled (hence why it was parted out), so that's how the spindle got bent.

I had the second set of knuckles from "acr_man" off of the other 'org, who also sold me my exhaust, my original SRT-4 struts, and a month ago, my 2000 MTX trans.
