what do u think about a single sheer lower on an LT kit? i know its pretty damn strong but have you run into any problem? why not use like a CST LT spindle? im sorry if this comes off as negative, its not. I have actaully PMed you before asking for advice, so these are just questions.

I don't recommend the setup on this Chevy. The Fabtech spindles, stock snouts, and bearings are all weak (roughly the size of a 2wd Toyota Pickup). I recommend going for the upgraded Toyota spindles. This puts the lower uniball in double shear and gives you bigger snouts, bearings, and 4-piston calipers (all for about the same price as the Fabtech spindles). I will eventually have full-fabbed spindles out to eliminate the single shear lower and upgrade the bearings.

The travel is limited with this kit because of the spindles. I can get more travel out of it, but I designed to force people to either upgrade the kit or take it easy with these spindles. I consider this kit to be entry-level.

The CST spindles (I assume you are referring to the uniball ones for the newer Chevys) are very expensive. If I was going to go with a route similar to that, I would run the Camburg spindles.

For what it's worth, this truck has had zero problems with the kit/spindles.
