    '98-'02 Firebird Performance Spindles

    Does anyone offer these, or are stock (NEW) up to the task??? Drag Racing Spindles are specific, and may not be rated for driving, although, with the abuse they take, maybe they are???

    Any help in this area is welcomed.

    MAXX

    I'd be impressed if you broke a stock spindle doing anything but getting into a bad accident.

    If you're worried about the rusted look, clean them up and paint them with some type of rust protection paint...I prefer POR15, but rustoleum will work too.

    ^^ This. I have never heard of anyone having a spindle issue in the almost 3 years I have been on the Board.

    Talking with Wilwood, and Ryan at UMI. all feel the stock spindles are super strong, so we'll stick with those. If we decide to use the current ones on the car, we have had them beadblasted, and will paint them with VHT Hi-Temp Gloss Black Brake and Rotor Paint. We have used this on many brake components over the years, and it holds up nearly as well as having them powder coated.]
