the cart is about 75 inches high.
it fits under my shelf in the garage that has 76 inch clearance with about an inch to spare.
you should be way clear at 78 inches.

Default Re: Anyone using a madjax lift

Has anyone run into the spindle nuts not wanting to screw back on to the Madjax spindle arm? We are installing one right now and everything went smooth till now... of course the last step before wheels. It feels like I'm stripping the nut after one turn. Doing everything with hand tools just so we don't strip something. Don't want to start forcing something and jack up whole thing

I do have one thought on it... The madjax video says to use a 13/16 socket to remove the spindle nut. However, I wasn't able to do that. A 13/16ths eight sided socket wouldn't go on the nut; too small. However a 16 point wrench did. I questioned whether the nut might be metric given it seems this cart is put together with a mixed bag of metric and standard sizes. The fact that the nut doesn't want to go on makes my wonder if it really wasn't metric and the solution is to go find two 13/16ths spindle nuts. Thoughts?

Sounds like a burr on the threads ..... i would inspect and run a tap the correct size on the spindle to clean up the threads . - Mayor

I would have thought that but I screwed it back on the original spindle no problem. Then flipped the nuts to the opposite side spindles (origianl ones) and same thing. I'm really starting to think it's a metric/standard thing. I just don't have a big enough metric set to confirm it. I"m gonna grab couple flange nuts in 13/16 and see what happens. If the nut dont fit... oh wait, that was a glove.

Take your old spindle and see if the threads match. Easiest was is to just lay the threads against each other and see if they fit snug. Kind of like webbing your fingers together....

I installed a 6 inch A arm on the precedent I am tricking out now. I have a jakes 6 inch double A arm on my other Precedent. Same tires and wheels. So far I like both equally. Give me a few weeks and I will have a better feel. I thought the Madjax instructions and video were very helpful. Jakes instructions were meh.

I've used Madjax lifts and the wheel/spindle nut seemed to start ok on the post. However, as I tightened it felt as if I was stripping the nut and post. I backed out and retightened a few times and had success. It's only happened on a few of them. Call madjax and they will make it right if you're unhappy.

Just a follow-up... after double checking everything and scratching my head I contacted madjax. Turns out there was some faulty spindles from the manufacturer where they weren't cut deep enough (prob a 14x1.5 instead of 14x2).

Two for Madjax. They are sending me two new spindles and a self addressed shipping label to return the faulty ones. Great customer service!

Ha... that's next on my list and I tried to work a deal on one given the headache on the lift. Unfortunately they can't (or don't) sell retail and wouldn't do a deal.

Their loss probably as most likely I'll be ordering Scotty's and supporting a site sponsor since this site has given me a wealth of knowledge.
