Q & A

What's in the Box

These Speedway spindles are one piece, drop forged design constructed of high strength 4140 steel, which makes them superior to original components. These spindles are modeled after the '37-'41 round-back design and use '37-'41 Ford king pins.

These spindles fit Ford axles from '28-'48. They can be used with period correct drum brakes or modern Speedway Motors disc brakes, but will not work with hubs from '28-'36.

  • Uses 1937-1941 king pin kit
  • For Ford axles 1928-1948
  • Will not work with 1928-1936 Hubs
  • Includes king pin kit

Be sure to include our spindle nut kit (910616004) to properly install these spindles.

Application

Ford-style spindles are generally your best choice when using an original Ford axle or an aftermarket I-beam axle. This spindle is a reproduction version of the 1937-41 spindle. Ford used the same king pin dimensions and geometry on the 1928-48 axles, therefore you can use any 1937-48 Ford spindle on any 1928-48 car axle.

Item Details

Includes forged spindles with king pins fit to spindles.

Excellent quality and fit

February 25, 2013
I purchased these spindles rather than cutting the arms off the original ones I've got. I had heard stories of aftermarket ones not being as strong as the old ones, and failures resulting in crashes. I liked that these were forged, and I've had good luck with other speedway components, so I decided to try them out. The car is driven, and driven hard, and these have held up great to everything I've thrown at them.
Pros:
  • Fit
  • Price
Yes, I recommend this product.

EASY INSTALL

August 27, 2010
Super easy install with fitted kingpins. Shims included with kit if necessary. King pins fit great, lower bearings instead of bushings for smooth steering and grease fittings. Great deal, I'll be surprised if you found a better deal on early ford spindles. But the kit, it will save you time and money fitting kingpins to spindles
Pros:
  • Shims included
  • Doesn't get any better
  • Grease fittings
  • Fitted kingpins
  • Easy Install
  • High quality spindles
  • Super price

What bearing seal will fit the 1928-1948 spinbdles? I A National 1949 seal fits ID and OD, but bottoms out before allowing the lip of the seal to slide on the shoulder where it needs to ride for a proper fit.

We will need to know what hub you are using this with to give you the correct bearing and seal for these spindles. When using a disc brake kit such as our 91031945 we use a bearing and seal adapter part number 91009301 which allows us to use seal 912S18562 and inner bearing 912TL68149 and race 912TL68110. When using the early Ford front hubs 91065450 we use seal 912S48190 and inner bearing 912T15118.

Answers

November 08, 2014
EricM
Camber is not adjustable, at least not easily. The axle would have to be heated and bent to change camber. This was a common practice many years ago on I beam axles but typically not required or suggested on a tube axle. The caster is adjusted differently depending upon the front suspension type. If you have a four bar or hair pin front suspension then you will shorten the upper connection and/or lengthen the lower connection to increase caster. From the sounds of your issue it is very possible that you either have spindles on upside down or the spindles are not correct for the axle. It is possible to install these Ford spindles on an axle that is made for '49 to '54 Chevy spindles but the camber will be wrong and there is no way to correct it.

Will these work on a 46 ford passenger car? I have a 46 ford car front end. I just bought a new 37-48 speedway drop axle and components, and was going to use my stock spindles. Now I've decided to get new spindles with kingpins. The problem I have is that my stock spindles are the 42-48 square back design. I'm not sure if these will match up to my hubs because these are the round back design. Are mine round on the inside and the holes match up and are just square on the outside once they are bolted on? I don't see the square back design listed on your site.

37-48 Ford spindles have the same dimensions for the snout where the bearings and seals ride. The bolt pattern for the backing plate or caliper bracket is also the same at 3 3/8” center to center both vertical and horizontally. The backing plates that bolt onto the spindles are different to accommodate the spindle and if using the 42-48 backing plates the round faced spindles will need to be ground somewhat flat on all four sides to fit in the recess of the backing plate.

Red Line 80402 CV-2 Synthetic Grease
(Part #60710002)
                        

Red Line’s team of chemists formulate fully-synthetic lubricants using only the world’s finest base stocks. At Red Line, it’s not designed to be the cheapest – it’s built to be the best. Red Line only uses superior polyester-based products – resulting in lubricants that are extremely stable at high temperatures.

Synthetic CV-2 grease provides excellent water resistance, low temperature flow, and its very high melting point allows it to be used in high temperature wheel bearings, high angle and conventional CV-joints, chassis lubrication and many industrial applications.

  • Outperforms the best conventional or synthetic greases and lubes
  • Excellent high-temp stability, extreme-pressure protection, and water resistance
  • Used in a variety of applications with operating temps from -100°F to 500°F
  • Strong resistance to oxidation and corrosion, low evaporation and oil separation with a minimum effect on rubber seals
  • Contains an organic moly for chassis lubrication and high temp/high speed industrial equipment
  • Synthetic fluidity allows increases in bearing life up to 200%
  • Contains a red moly compound which is a superior lubricant to black moly disulfide lubricants
