(1/2) > >>

66stang:
i have a 66 mustang with 6 cylinder Suspension and i would like to change it over to 5 lug.  i have a set of 67 spindles but i didn't know if it was possible to put these on it. if so does anybody know what parts i would need to swith these spindles over to my car.

Don A:
For openers both upper and lower arms--Possibly springs and Most likely linkage--If my memory is correct the holes in the spindles for the linkage are not the same size.

See if you can find a parts book---

No way. It won't work - at least easily. Keep in mind that a 4 lug to 5 lug conversion also includes the rear axle, which will have to be replaced along with the drive shaft, springs, brakes, and it gets a whole bunch complicated. Don't let this stop you, it's a great project to do and you will learn a lot about your car.

Don A:
66 is correct--total conversion is difficult ---I was speaking of front spindles only which I understood to be the question--I once owned a 67 V8 totally rusted out and a 66 with 6 cylinder--I did transfer the entire system but there were a couple of surprises--One item NOT transfered were the rear springs--I used the 66 springs and booster shocks--
