Re: Any body have or seen the TC spindles installed

I only just noticed them. Was almost ready to buy when I realized they won't work on 4x4 (was like 'where does the CV go through? oh, wait, 2wd'). Look awesome, though:

(Anybody here have a mod'ed race-inspired 2wd fj?)

Re: Any body have or seen the TC spindles installed

I guess the major difference here, apart from them looking crazy beefy, is that the wheel hub gets mounted like 3.5" further up (or down, depending on your perspective), so there's more ground clearence from the lower control arm. I guess that's also why they say you can run with much larger tires (from their website):

"3.5” 05+ Tacoma Prerunner/06+ FJ Cruiser 4x2/03-07 4Runner 4x2 - Lift Spindles. Finally a race inspired bolt on lift spindle for your 2005+ Tacoma Prerunner, 06+ FJ 4x2 and 03-07 4Runner 4x2. TOTAL CHAOS spindles are designed to add an additional 3.5” of lift and can be installed with existing aftermarket mid travel upper control arm and coil over shock packages. These systems combined provide 6”+ of lift and maximum cross member ground clearance, allowing you to Install up to a 35” tire. Our tubular tower and plate design features internal gussets along with overlay plates to add strength and reinforcement to proven weak areas. The tower includes a tapered bung that offers a pocket to access the aftermarket uniball conversion nut or thefactory ball joint. The CNC machined billet hub includes a one piece bearing carrier, and caliper mounts that are integrated into the boxed main body. To maximize strength, TC’s spindle was designed to not retain the factory sway bar. With the heavier spring rates of aftermarket coil over shocks and the increased track width provided by the spindles (3/4” per side), the sway bar removal is not noticeable. Removing the sway bar also allows for maximum wheel travel and articulation which will greatly improve the vehicles off road handling and performance. TOTAL CHAOS lift spindles come powder coated black and include a pair of D.O.T. approved stainless extended brake lines. Lift spindles that are intended to be installed with TC long travel systems must be specified at time of purchase. ABS wire tabs and brake line tabs are included to aid in routing the lines away from contact areas to prevent damage to these components."

Re: Any body have or seen the TC spindles installed

Yea i ordered a set after talking to Pat at total chaos. They are down and moving during the holidays but looking forward to the install. He said they have sold many sets for tacomas but he hasn't heard any fj yet. Will have to learn how to post pictures eventually.
