Hey guys, I only have around 2 days to work on my car and get her going before the rain comes so here goes. **********Is there any way I can replace the spindle without taking everything apart again? I put everything back together only to realize(visually) that my spindle was bent and I was trying to get out of removing all the ball joints and stuff like that, thanks alot. Also, I just order my KYB Gr-2 struts, when they come in, can I take them and my ST rear lowering springs in to a shop and have them matched up and then bring them home and do a direct swap or will I need some extra parts or replacments? Thanks alot everyone!

you don't have to remove the ball joints from the arms but only have to unbolt the wheel, brake, hub, Upper ball joint from the spindle, Lower ball joint from the spindle, Steering knuckle and anything else that may get in the way. If you just replaced all your ball joints you may get lucky and they may pop out really easy. Just don't Hammer on the shaft. If you must pop it out with a hammer support the spindle with a jack and tie in the spring have a block or jack stand under the arm to catch it and put the nut on half way then pop it. This way the the end of the shaft doesn't get mushroomed or the threads damaged. Shouldn't be too hard.
