I did that swap, turning radius is much sharper, I used yzf450 front calipers they bolt right on.

Hey dezled are your a-arms stock width or did you order different width? If they are stock width, do the end up being wider than the stock Zilla front end?

The z400 spindles/hubs are 1.75" wider per side over the Zilla spindles/hubs. I went with +1" wider +1" forward a arms. Then needed +4" brake lines also



So yeah cworobec just the hub/spindle swap no a arm change nets you 3.5" wider.

S**t lol even with stock z400 wheels? Or does the factory offset narrow it back up to a 48" total?

I'm not sure of the z400 rim offset, but the set up I have nets 50" wide at full suspension droop

I just joined this forum and am fairly new too the Zilla world, but are you guys stating the LTZ400 Spindles would also fit the stock LT500 A-Arms. Probably a pretty nice inexpensive upgrade.

The z400 spindles do bolt on. BUT the stock ball joints bind  earlier with the Z400 spindles. It's like if you want your front end lower that would work well. The suspension droop isn't the same.

Hi there, do you know if the z400 and the ltz400 spindles/hubs/rotor are the same?
I want to do the swap but I'm not sure if there's any difference.

What I mean is what year of z400 spindles/hubs/rotors are you using? 03-04, 05-08 or 09-14?
