What's going be the better choice, to upgrade to the steel spindles from HRC Racing or to just gusset the stock spindles? How undestructable will the steel spindles be? compared to the stocks with gussets?
Rhinocrap is selling the steel ones for $749, but I haven't really heard about there performance. I heard that the SCF ones can break and have. Like you said your taking a risk on the stockers. $400 is alot to spend if there gonna break. I'm just trying to figure out what would be best.Well, HDHQ wants $400 to plate and tig spindles, I bought some $900 billet SCF spindles which I haven't tried, which should be great! and I don't think you can beat the superior design and construction of that spindle, and with stockers, and heating them up to do anything (made of cast), you're taking a risk, which I wasn't willing to take apparently.....
No...I'm just wanting to prevent problems. Seems like alot of kits have a problem in the tie-rod area. I've taken mine out a few times now and ran it hard, no bent or broken parts yet.Are your spindles not holding up Fergie?
I think the HCRs are the ticket for a replacement spindle... only think now you have to watch out for is the possibility of displacing the stress from your spindle to your tie-rods and steering rack. This happens on certain brands of long travel suspension out there.
There's already companies working on this. There was one at the Jagged X rhino crash passing out flyers for a new steering system. I don't remeber the company name though. Maybe someone else does, but they gave away a free steering system.hopefully soon someone will come out with a better tie-rods and steering rack
I've heard of a few people that are just reinforcing there stock spindles. What exactly are you doing to do this? any pic's?I have been running my same original stock spindles that have been reinforced with plating since we put together my rhino. They have been great....no problems with them at all, and we have hit some nasty whoops alot faster than any other rhinos......done that quite a bit, actually. Not to mention all the rocks I tagged at the Parker 250 - lol! I just can't stomach the thought of spending $800-900 on two front spindles - I don't care what they are made of........
