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.

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--

Yes, you can do the Granada swap and wind up with a 5 bolt spindle, but you would be foolish to keep the rest of the 6 banger suspension.  For a few hundred more dollars, you can have a V8 front end.  Then, because you will need either an 8" or 9" rear, you may as well go ahead and get the rear axle and pumpkin with springs as well.  Oh, and if you have the weak assed 3 speed transmission, you may as well go ahead and get a top loader.  Oh, and while you are at it.......... ;D
