Spindle Identification Guide (GIF)



  1. Chevy 1949-54 spindles are specifically designed for use on tube axles. A shorter, thicker axle stub makes this a slightly stronger spindle ideal for use with heavier street rods.
  2. Ford 1928-48 spindles are generally your best choice when using an original Ford axle or an aftermarket I-beam axle. 


Cross Steering vs. Traditional Steering

Traditional steering provides an original, period look, but will only work in these applications:

  • Four bar setup with '68-'73 Mustang box
  • Split wishbone or hairpin radius rod with reversed Corvair or '48-'56 Ford Puckup steering box
  • Parallel Steering Set-Up Guide

Cross steering (using a Vega box) is the preferred method for nearly all cross spring, beam axle suspensions. Ford used this design from 1935-on.

  • Less bumpsteer
  • More comfortable steering column angle
  • Frees up foot pedal / bellhousing room
  • Cleaner vehicle profile 
  • Cross Steering Guide 

If you are wanting our chrome option, please note that not everything comes in chrome.
