I am going to find some front spindles so i can have the fronts ready to assemble on the car.  I was thinking of putting new front wheel bearings while I am at it, even if they don't need replacing. Has anyone done this on their D2 install?  and where have been people been buying the bearings?
That is a perfect time to replace your wheel bearings and seals. I did the same thing when installing my KSport's.

I have several sets of D2s and they are great and high quality, but I do not prefer to daily drive my car with D2.  Maybe that's the road quality around my place, or maybe I'm old.... I don't know but the ride can be stiff and a little bouncy, but the car does handle like a go-cart which is awesome.



Maybe I'm getting old too but I agree completely :lol:   My D2's I find a little bouncy especially on the softer settings.  I actually prefer the higher settings now just to get away from the bounce.  Spent alot of time adjusting pre-load but could never get it to go away unless I bumped up the dampening.  I just got a set of Legion's for my other car.....hoping they're a tad more street oriented.

Got my D2's today.The spindle/strut tube is not painted/powder coated at all. From all the pics I have seen, they are always painted black. Did they just forget to do it? or maybe its for a reason, possibly because they know people will be welding on them, or the extra thickness of the paint was causing the tube to not fit over the spindle strut tube?Anyways I am going to contact D2 about it tommorow.Also, check out the instructions...engrish please :lol:

Edit: Missed the 1st bottom section:"please painted the hub and our tube to void the rusty" :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, that answered my question.

Mine were not painted either. I rubbed them down with a degreaser after being welded and painted everything black.

Does anyone know if there are any differences for the front strut/spindles assemblies between 86-89?  I have an 88, if i find some spindles from another year, i just want to make sure they work.

Also what is the best descriptive name most commonly used? I feel like I'm not using the right words here....Strut housing, spindles, shock housing, wheel bearing assembly etc...

The only differences in the spindles that I know are that narrowbody cars had a different spindle angle than the widebody cars. That is due to the difference in front lower control arm lengths.
