Thanks guys, looking forward to racing with you guys as well.
It's just easier to post pictures on FABO, so most of my comments and photos are over there.
But I will keep posting here as well.
I got the Wilwood spindles yesterday, I will find out how they are going to work tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving Slanters!

Since it's not an A Body, I placed the thread in the Mopar Racer Forum.
Here is a link to the thread.

Progress
I have been working on the front spindle issue for quite a while now.
Last week I sent all the ball joints and Mustang II spindles back to Speedway and Jegs.
I just could not make any of it work with my old parts.

At first when I spoke with Strange they said they had no parts for my old stuff.
After talking with one of their tech guys I did find a rotor I can use.
So I ordered them and it looks like I am in business.
They sell a rotor caliper for these rotors and I would need to build mounts to my spindles.
I can use my spindles and front end parts. I just need pads for these AIRHEART calipers.
The worn out rotors were the problem that started this whole process.

Here is the old rotor next to the new rotor.

Lots of stuff working, not much finished. I did get the hood mounted. Found front brake pads and O-rings for the calipers. Trying decide if I want to build an aluminum trans as my main gearbox. Liberty will do steel bushings front and rear so it will be like the race case. Either a 2.66 or 2.47 first gear set. 30 lbs lighter than a steel setup. I have an old DC aluminum tailshaft housing for either front case I run.
