HEY HARRY
I GOT THE SPINDLES FROM CAMBURG IN HUNTINGTON BEACH.
THEY WERE $500 FOR BOTH SIDES.

Looks awesome man! Seeing all these sweet 95+ Explorers is really making me consider buying my mom's 98 2WD 4dr (wedgewood blue w/gray int, SOHC 4.0, only 22K so far) from her when I'm done with college... Throw on the Camburg spindles, twist the torsions up about 1.5", and get some 4 or 5" leafs for the rear... 32x11.50 or 33x12.50 BFG AT KO's on Eagle 589's, clear corners, billet grille, ditch the running boards, ahhhh jeez you guys are KILLING my bank account, for now AND the future! ;)

That thing looks awesome man. Great job!! Looks like you've got plenty of ground clearance under the front end with those spindles. Looks sharp!

I WENT WITH 10.5 BECAUSE THE 12.5 RUBBED TO MUCH AND I DID NOT WANT TO DO ANY TRIMMING. BUT THE 10.5 STILL RUB A LITTLE.

another mod that will really look good on your X would be to take those blue or gray lookin pinstripes off and just have the truck all white with clear corners. that would be sweet, but then again just a suggestion. nice looking truck by the way.
