2 inch RAISED spindle

I was looking for 2 inch raised spindles for my 66 chevelle, and I was wondering if someone manufactured these? I know I am going in the opposite direction of the majority, but that's what I tend to do. Thanks for any help on this.

Never seen a raised spindle before. I manufacture a tall non drop spindle which will help make your 66 drive like a new car and have better road manners. But I have never seen a raised spindle for a bodies. You might be able to use a g body donk spindle i guess but I have no idea where you would find that.

Re: 2 inch RAISED spindle

Get a pair of drop spindles, flip them upside down. Drill and re-taper where necessary. Solution.






only a little sarcasm here...

Re: 2 inch RAISED spindle

Nope, no such option exists, and flipping a drop spindle won't do the trick either.

On a stock spindle, the "pin" is at the bottom of the spindle anyway, so it's virtually impossible to move it down any further.

You missed the sarcasm disclaimer in pink. Maybe it was too subtle...

Re: 2 inch RAISED spindle

My 66 sits tall in the front. just get some heavy springs and ball joint spacers if needed.
