Hey everyone. Newly here. Man... what a vast amount of knowledge and a great resource.
I need some help. I’m searching for a spindle for my 88 Horse. After tearing into my wheels and brakes and trying to rebuild my spindles I found that I had a bad spindle. I have the 1987-early 1988 short spindles with the flanged “top hat” manual locking hubs. Does anyone after their upgrades have a spare spindle(s) that they want to sell? Please advise and thanks guys!

Yo Joel,
Used 87-88 Top Hat spindle @ Ford F150 Bronco 87-88 Knuckle Spindle 4x4 OEM Dana Spicer 44 IFS Front Top Hat for sale online | eBay

Ask at 1980-1996 Ford Dana 44 IFS Spindles | Shop Dana 44 IFS Ford F150 & Bronco Front Spindle Replacements - Torque King

For a YARD SEARCH on-line, I use;

87 to Early 88 Flange Style (Top Hat) Hub; "...You need either ~$600 in flange hub locks, or ~$700 in conversion parts & several hours' labor to convert your front end to the "standard" locks, OR you need a good used axle complete with normal locks which can be had for ~$200 & can be installed in a couple of hours in your driveway. If you get an axle that uses the same style calipers as your truck ('85-94), you won't even have to open the brake lines. Note that '87-early 88 with AUTO hubs use normal locks..."
