I am now offering Flipped spindle service for your 55-67 bus, at a much more reasonable cost than the kewl guys.
Why pay more for the exact same service? I also use this setup in my personal, regularly driven vehicle. I wouldn't sell you something I didn't use myself.
* When mailing your cores, please package them tightly and tape the box A LOT. I can't be liable if your box shows up destroyed and your parts are MIA. *
Send me your stock spindles, I disassemble and inspect them, clean/blast the components, modify them and re assemble them as 3.5" dropped spindles!
I have the 64+ dies and can chase your spindle threads, but I don't currently have the early ones.
** TAPE UP YOUR THREADS WHEN YOU SEND IN CORES!! **
If you'd like to scrape some of the crud off, please do!
** I DON'T have these in stock, and must have your cores to build. **
These are modified, NOT cut and welded or any bullshit. I also clearance them in a way that doesn't require the need of gussets and I remove as little as material as possible.

This price is a basic modify and flip. If your spindles are worn enough to need kingpins I let you know and we go from there. See the photos for samples! If you need kingpins, it will add the cost of the parts plus $75 labor.
You can check the spindles themselves for any lateral movement before removing them, to give you a rough idea of their condition.
I always take them apart, and send photos of the condition of your spindles before I proceed.
Once I recieve your spindles, depending on my work load you should have them back on their way home within the same week.
