Lol I have talked to Marcus several times about that stuff, starting over a month ago. He knows I'm looking to get it all.

if he knows you want it all then why did he bump his classifieds again. Tell him you'll buy it. I can bring it to you or close to you when y'all go wheeling at gulches on the 4th.

Because I don't have the cash yet, which he knows. It's an "if you still have it" deal. Not very many people looking for 5x5.5 Waggy conversion parts in the Carolinas atm.

And I don't think anyone is going to Gulches

i'd go ahead and purchase it as soon as you can man. That saves a lot of running around. I had to run all over the place to find all my ****. You will probably never find used small bearing spindles, and the price of new spindles is 200 alone.

$200 is a bit high, the stock waggy knuckles are pretty useless.

Not really. New spindles are 200, junkyard rotors and hubs are 40+ (new are 100 + a pop). Bearings are another 50. All his stuff is in good shape too. I'd say his price is pretty reasonable.

I also still use a stock waggy knuckle on the drivers side. Also if you want your jeep to be low i'd say don't run a high steer arm. Set it up in double sheer, single sheer with the drag link above and tie rod below, or set up a t type steering.. I wasted my money putting a high steer arm on it. That is a complete waste of time, and effort i would not do it again.

Also if i were to do it again i'd do 7/8 shank heims with a 7/8 whole, step it down to a 3/4 bolt so you can run your drag link in double sheer with the tie rod. Thats a much better design but i'm not going back to do it and to spend more money.

Also a 7/8 heim is gonna last a good bit longer than a 3/4 heim. I'm not concerned about breaking a 3/4 heim cause the hitman buggy is running 3/4 heims on its upper links. They hold up, just will wear out faster
