Lowering Spindles hitting ball joint


I put 2" lowering spindles in my 74 now the stock wheels (steel & alu.) rub the lower ball joint??
Advice needed. Would like to keep the 13"wheels.
Thanks, Brent

Seems like the only option you have is to use spacers between the wheel and the hub. You can test the needed spacer size with stacking washers but that is not an acceptable method by itself. Also watch for how much thread you have left after adding a spacer. I know some sanctioned racing groups require at least 7 threads showing. Not sure is there is a standard for the street. Seems to me that once the lug nut is on any threads beyond the nut are just hanging there doing nothing. Anyway do all at your own risk. Use wisdom and commonsense.
