Drop Spindle creation

here's just a random thought i had for those with cad skills and the access to cnc machines. What if instead of using drop springs which granted are very cheap and readily available for the rears of our car someone were to create a set of drop spindles. If you don't know what these are they actually just raise the hub location in the spindle to give you the same drop. By doing this we should be able to fit just as wide of a 15 or 16 inch rim tucked nice and neat in our cars as the guys running the larger diameter rims. a 15x10 under our cars could be very very handy when dealing with the pesky gtp clubs at the drag strip

May be worth it. Maybe post this in the Suspension forum as well and see if anyone chimes in.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.
