Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.

The two sets of NOS spindles arrived today, along with the emergency flasher switch knob and a *ahem* correct tool for removing tie rod ends.

The spindles will go out this weekend for powder coat and I should see them back in a week or two.

And this was sitting on the porch.
 I opened the box to inspect the contents and found a nicely packaged group of parts.  The only real bummer about this kit is that it DOESN'T have backing plates.  I didn't notice that until the box arrived.  I went online to compare the photo to what I received and noticed that they're not shown.  After a bit more digging, I found old installation instructions that seem to indicate that they stopped including backing plates around 2007/2008.  I have sent a message to CSP to inquire about their availability since it was one of the things I really liked about the kit.  The CIP1 website shows an image with the backing plates as a part of the kit.
Wheel bearings and wheel seal included.

I'll be getting into this kit more over the weekend - especially since the spindles arrived - and I'm starting my write up/comparison of contents.  The write up will take some time to complete because I want it to be comprehensive:  What questions would I want answered to help me make a decision?
