- Spindle modification is necessary when installing these backing plates. Up to 1/4" of material may need to be removed on the top of the spindle.
- Our flat plate steering arms WILL NOT fit this backing plate.
- Wheel cylinders will need an O-ring or a sealing washer as they are not IFF fittings. If using with Model A or B spindles, the four bolt holes will have to be elongated inward to fit that narrower bolt pattern. We recommend using a 916-31928 adapter ring for this application.
