Got them the other day....Look like they are good quality. Looks like a hi grade steel. It will be a while before I install them though. Just found out the other day that my job is kaputt in 8 weeks.......... . Have to watch the coin until I can line something up.

I can certainly relate to the low on "coin" thing! I build my car in one part at a time. Good Luck!

National Nostalgic Nova Club offers machined spindles on an exchange basis, in other words you can send your old spindles back to them for a core charge refund. Might save you some down-time.
