I just need the spindle shaft that bolts to the dust shield.. I'm trying to change the rotors and the wheel bearing is siezed to it and I can't get it off, so I guess I just need to buy another spindle..

Has to be from the "top hat" style hubs. Manual locking hubs 87-88

would it be just as easy as upgrading to the newer style hubs? I have the bearing hubs and lockouts but no spindles as of yet. Still have a truck to part out

I believe I have one. It came off my old 87 Bronco with the top hat style manual lock outs. I think the spindle shaft is shorter then the older& newer style ones. Is there anyway you could measure how long your spindle shaft is just so I can double check the one I've got?

the 87-88 spindles are 1/2 the size of the other kind..

My wife didn't want to wait for me to get one since it was her DD.. (plus due to other reasons she hasn't been able to drive it for almost a month now)

I ended up just pulling off the spindle on that size and changing it with a spindle/rotor/hub assembly from a 91.. Only drawback is that the 91's front end was with auto hubs.. :( So now the drivers side is an auto hub setup from a 91 and an 87 manual setup on the pass side..

As soon as the brakes need to be done again I'll change the pass side over to the 91 setup and then switch it all over to manual hubs.
