    AFX spindles for 70-81 f bodies?

    Are there AFX spindles available for 70-81 f bodies? Im looking to have c6 or c7 front hubs. They would be installed to DSE upper and lower control arms on a stock subframe.

    you can do the afx spindles from speedtech, the CPP spindles are a good budget setup as well.

    I thought the Speedtech ones were first gen specific?

    The AFX spindles have geometry improvements on top of being able to use c7 hubs. I read on this forum that the spindle requires speed techs idler arm relocation bracket and revised pitman length, which makes sense since the spindle shortens the steering arm and lowers the steering system. The camaro is still in mock up phase so I'm considering to remove and replace the DSE upper control arms with the speedtech high clearance uppers as well as all necessary steering components ST offers to be able to use the AFX spindle.

    Would anyone be interested in a pair of DSE 70-81 f body upper control arms w/ caster adjusters? They have only been installed for mock up.
