Are you looking to drop the front end? If so, I don't think anyone makes a dropped spindle, but several places make a dropped axle. DJM is one.

Why are you needing them? Are to you trying to drop the front? Change to discs? Are they worn out?

1970 f-100 spindles
Not looking to drop it. The spindle is worn so bad that the bearing races won't seat properly. I thought that while I've got the engine out it would be a good time to change the spindles but I can't find replacements anywhere near Joplin and I'm not about to buy used parts over the internet. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

66 to 72 are the same spindle. 73 to 79 fit in pairs. One of the yards out on 43 at black cat rd should have what you need.

Yea, was hoping to avoid the whole junk yard thing, would rather pay more for new, but that's what I get for hanging on to this old truck. Now that I've got the Z finished I should have time to get this front end done right. Thanks for the input.

I never thought something like this would be impossible to find! I wonder if a good Ford dealer could find something NOS?
