Wagenswest started making these drop spindles many many years before the large companies came along and flooded the market with poor quality imported sketchy junk spindles. We still make them, with attention to quality and geometry, 2 things the other companies seam not to care about. This quality thing, is why Wagenswest has decided to stay small and focus on making parts that work good. We build these spindles in house and typically you can expect a 2 to 3 week wait to get a set after you order. THANK YOU!

Please understand that we build these kits, in our shop and usually assemble to order – as they come in, and you may have to wait a week or more. If you want to know how long just email us.

Thanks Nate @Wagenswest
