    Does anyone sell new spindle for 82-89 m-body? Searched all over the interwebs, nothing...

    Any reason why a used one wouldn't work? Fat Man Fab makes new drop spindles if that is what you're looking for.

    I could re-use them, just thought if I'm buying the whole front suspension as a kit why not do that too. I understand they can wear and the bearing won't fit tight.

    All ’76 to ’89 FMJ spindles will work, as well as all R-body and ’75-79 B-body spindles.
    I hadn’t seen a new spindle for sale, in decades.

    There are tons of good used spindles out there.
    I had to replace one on my wagon about 18 months ago, because wheel bearing failed damaging the spindle beyond reuse. I found one at a local pull-a-part for about $15 (US)
