I just got my 1966 in December, well it sat for 10 years out side and was never started or moved. so I went into the brake system first and foremost after I got her running. I spent almost 2 weeks researching and finding what vehicle was used to do the disc brake conversion / 5 lug swap on the front. Come to find out they are Granada calipers and rotors.

My question is, I've noticed the tie rod ends are on an extreme angle when the car is sitting at ride height. I want to correct this. I have found a set of 1966 stock 5 lug drum front spindles. And I can get them very cheap. Would I be able to use the spindles and just purchase the 66 rotors, calipers and associated brake hardware to correct the geometry or is it more involved than that.

The car was originally a 6 cylinder car.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
