A really quick and easy way to get a little extra height and some bigger tires on the front end of a 2WD truck is to add a lift spindle. A lift spindle bolts in place of the factory spindle, but drops the point where the unit bearing attaches three to four inches (depending on what company and what truck application). A spindle lift like this requires no shock replacement, and you can use whatever suspension (long-travel or stock) that you’d like. If the factory spindle fits, then so will a Maxtrac spindle. The Max Trac spindles are made of heavy-duty ductile iron and are considerably larger than the factory units while still bolting in without any modifications. That’s why our friend at SMP Fabworks added a set of MaxTrac spindles to his already modified Titan suspension to get a few more inches of lift. Maxtrac has a number of 2WD applications available, and the Titan spindles bolted directly onto his modified suspension just like the factory spindle did. 01.

The Maxtrac Suspension lift spindles will give us four inches of lift while adding some strength to our suspension package. The new spindles are made of thick ductile cast-iron in order to handle serious off-road use. Here you can see the difference in size of the new Max Trac lift spindle compared to the OEM spindle. The Maxtrac spindle eliminates any potential weak points of the original design by using a thicker casting at the upper ball joint mount.02.

But they also work in conjunction with the aftermarket Camburg upper arm, Sway-A-Way coilovers, and Heim-jointed steering found on this particular truck. It took about 20 minutes per side to do the whole job, including pulling the tire and wheel off.04. The Maxtrac spindles bolt directly in place of the stock units, with completely stock 05. Though this Nissan Titan has fiberglass fenders and bedsides to accommodate larger tires, the only suspension lift comes from the front MaxTrac spindle and a small lift block between the axle and the leaf springs in the rear.05.
