UMI Performance is pleased to announce our latest handling option: two inch drop spindles with 1.75" additional spindle height as compared to stock.

Our spindle upgrade works with existing UMI upper and lower arms and is also available in complete kit form. Adding spindle height increases camber gain and keeps the front tires planted as opposed to the stock geometry. When combined with our caster corrected upper a-arms, expect a front end that sticks and also has precise feel and stability.

The stance shown in the photos was achieved with 2" drop spindles and 1" lowering springs up front and 2" lowering springs out back. Current dampers are Bilstein with other options available in both spring and shock.

Test results coming soon.

Give us a call, PM or email for further details.

I've had quite a few PM's asking about ride height.

With a total of 3" lowering (2" spindle, 1" spring) we end up with a 3-1/4" crossmember height up front. We can adjust this attitude with a stock height front spring or with coilovers, if we desire a bit more height up front, or a more level look.

Awesome! Now where's my credit card

It sounds like a "tall spindle" specific upper A arm is not needed?
A tall spindle specific upper a-arm is not needed. You can use a factory upper, or for the ultimate in handling, steering feel and high speed stability, the UMI upper.
