    I imagine you are looking at wheels. Most funny cars and dragsters use an Anglia type spindle, even the Strange spindles use these dimensions, while the Strange spindles is the spindle dimensions for their door car struts which is based on Camaro.

    STRANGE & SPE spindles are both for Anglia type wheels, The STRANGE spindle have a longer king pin boss with spacers to raise/lower the spindle centerline to adjust chassis preload. The SPE/P&S type don't use spacers, you have to adjust the camber to adjust preload or build it into the front suspension.

    Alkyguy has probably already answered your question I'll bet, as the wheel companies refer to a certain wheel style as being for a Strange spindle, when they really should state Strange strut.
    Is your question answered ?
    Danny has a completely different question.
    Also, a point of interest to those buying the new billet "Torque Thrust" style F/C spindle mount wheels, the bearing race bores are closer together than Centerline or Weld front wheels, so be sure to install a spacer washer between the outer bearing and nut, as this will NOT try to cut new threads with the nut trying to tighten the wheel. (and to properly load the bearing).
