Default Ridetech

Not really ready with this Yet.. If You read the text for the dropped spindles.. "Must Be Modified For Use With Rack & Pinion Setups " what kind of modifications do I have to make to the spindles?????

Reduced Clearance Issues
•Strong Design Prevents Deformation And Failure
•Forged From Solid Steel
•Improves Ride Quality
•Made In The USA
•Must Be Modified For Use With Rack & Pinion Setups
•Use With Our Wilwood Front Brake Packages
•Will Not Work With CCI Rotors 57-191479, 191480, & 132343
Eckler's and RideTech have partnered up to bring you new drop spindles for your 1955-1957 Chevy. There are two ways to properly lower your classic. One is to add lowering coil springs; the other is to add a set of our two-inch dropped spindles. The dropped spindles will not in any way alter the steering or suspension geometry. In addition, our two-inch dropped spindle kit actually reduces the offset of the wheel mounting surface to the outer fenders by 1/4" per side, reducing tire clearance issues experienced with standard front spindles equipped with disc brakes on your 1955 1956 1957 Chevy. Always trust Ecklers for all your restoration needs!

" Use With Our Wilwood Front Brake Packages"

Yes I can buy the Wilwood but I do not know what kind of modifications to get this together.... have spent 6.5k on parts from Ecklers so an answer could be in Place.

You could call Ridetech and they should be able to help you.
Found this on Ecklers website....
"THIS VENDOR SAYS YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW THE GEOMETRY OF THE RACK AND PINION SET UP. THIS COULD BE BEYOND MANY HOME SHOP MECHANICS ---- AND DOES NOT RECOMMEND ATTEMPING THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING". This Kit Is Made In The USA.

Wilwood has brake kits for both the Ridetech spindles and stock spindles. Two different kits, the hubs are different, otherwise the same.

One difference between using an R&P vs. a box is that you may need shorter steering arms with R&P.
