Question about 1986 Dodge W150
Blew the bearings on the left front, chewed up the spindle, now with a new (used good condition) spindle on the outer axle shaft angles upward checked to make sure shaft wasn't bent, made sure the spindle wasn't warped, but now I can't put the little gear thingy in the hub because the axle doesn't sit straight, A guy I worked with thought maybe the knuckle got knocked out of place, so maybe if I don't find any other possible answers here I'll check that. Thanks
That used spindle you bought is most certainly bent. it only takes a little bit. sometimes hard to tell
