93+ spindle swap

ok I'm going to go ahead and change to the 93+ spindles from what I've read I will need to change the tie-rod ends as well, so here is my question, have any of you guys done it, and what parts/tools did you need? I plan on getting this done when I get my birdy back, and then I'm going to change over to the SN-95 hubs. thanks and ya I searched but I couldn't find anything particularly definate about whats needed and such, if there isn't one when I do I'll take enough pics to write one. thanks again guys.

There is no replacement for displacement. Only ways to make the small dog act like the big dog

The only special tool you should need is a pickle fork to separate the lower ball joint and the tie rod end from the spindle. Otherwise, it's pretty straight forward. Then, when you do the hubs, you'll need a 250 ft-lb torque wrench. Don't forget to use new nuts with the new hubs.

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

you dont need to change the tie rods , the only thing to change is the sway bar link and whatever brake parts you are going to use, btw if you dont have a pair of knuckles yet i have a set here

And be careful when you use the fork. Make sure you slide it between the top of the boot and the arm. That way you do not tear the boot.

And Tobey. It wasn't that pulley. Need it back?

No. The only idler pulley I have on mine is grooved. Go ahead and keep it in case you need it later.

It isn't real hard. Alot of people cry about that lower ball joint nut and trying to get it out of the spindle. Mine was simple. I don't recommed using pickle forks.
