    I installed new lift spindles on my 05 sport trac over the weekend. I have been doing a lot of research on this to make sure I got everything right. I put on smaller rotors and extended my brake line. I dropped it off to get aligned this morning and they called back saying they couldn't fix it and it was dangerous to be driven. Is there anything I did wrong or anything I can do to fix it?

    I installed spindles on my '01 ranger which is the same work. Did they say why they couldn't do it? Some shops don't like messing around with modified trucks so you might be better off going somewhere else.

    Just talked to the shop and they said the caliper was hitting the control arm and losing pressure. Thanks for the link swshawaii
