    Didn't you order street series bogarts? Of course they're going to be heavier.

    you know off the lot these truck only can fit 17'' up front so wouldnt matter if i put oem spindle...according to rich its the big brakes that are the problem....as for the weight that doesnt really bother me...its the 3 month bs wait i didnt mind a month or so but i guess ill run the black steelies up front...if they dont make it by raceday

    the problem with the spindle is the placement of the lower balljoint nut. when you get a drop spindle it moves the hub higher in the spindle which gives you youre drop. doing this moves the wheel upwards and now closer to the wheel. a GMT900 truck comes with PBR calibers and 13" brakes. I have the 08 calibers and 14" rotors on mine. i have a 17x4 front runner on mine but im not a drop spindle. If you had stock spindles and swapped the mounting of your strut setup you would gain youre drop back and still be able to clear the 17s easily

    Part of the problem is also 17x7" width and the wheels are the street series which are thicker material. I will have a set of 17x4.5" at SAR... You are welcome to try them.. The offset on them helps the clearance

    This has drilled and slotted rotors itself so they are bigger too lol... Try again... the only thing that was a problem was the caliper needed grinded all the hell but he had them off and made it look stock... But thats common these days for our trucks and racing wheels too...
