Re: Dropped spindles increase track width?

I called them today and they confirmed what i was thinking.they said it varies from one car to another but anywhere from a 1/4-1/2 is possible.when i asked why that useful info wasn't with any of the paperwork/instructions he did say he was very sorry....not nearly as sorry i am.
