ProSpindles mount to your OE ball joints, using stock or aftermarket replacement tubular control arms, lower the center of gravity for less body roll, while maintaining your steering geometry. The ProSpindle's 1.6" taller overall height means better negative camber gain, more caster gain, and a raised front roll center to modernize the way your car handles. These Wilwood 2" drop spindles are made from high-strength steel and mount using the existing OE bolt-on steering arms, so there is no increase in bump steer.
Once your new high-strength steel ProSpindles are installed you have a plethora of Wilwood brake kits to choose from, with many rotor and caliper sizes, and up to 24 caliper colors. All the brake kits will include hubs, bearings, seals, wheel studs, caliper brackets, rotors, calipers, pads, and all premium-grade attachment hardware. DOT-approved stainless steel flexline brake lines are available in multiple lengths to fit your application. Best of all Wilwood brake kits are engineered and manufactured in the USA and are backed by a professional tech support staff.
