I bought a used modified last year. I ran the whole year without to much trouble. However, last night I hit the wall hard enough to bend the RF spindle and lower control arm ball joint. My question is this. What is the best spindle to replace the old on with? Or do I find a spindle just like the on I bent? If that is the case, how can you tell what spindle was on the car? Does anyone know any websites or dealers who can help? Also, when I get this back together, what should I set the caster and camber for the left and roght front?

If it has gm spindles on it there will be a part# on the backside. Replace it with what it has on now.

pinto spindles are very good and strong, but they are getting hard to find. i would keep with the same spindles that are on the car because you will probably have an easier time finding them.

Thanks for the info. Any ideas on caster and camber? The track is Terre Haute Action Track in Indiana. Half mile with only a slight bank. Track will get hard slick and dusty.
