1964 Falcon & Unisteer

I have 1976 Granada Disk brakes on the front of my 1964 Falcon and installed a new Unisteer Power Rack system. My problem is the turning radius is very short. Has anyone used this and if so what spindles did you use? I called Unisteer and they said they used Disk Brake adapters on the original spindals for the mock up. It seems the connecting arms on the spindals are to long on the Granada ones. I used these since I was also converting from 4 lug to 5 lug.

can you put on the old spindles? will the rotors/bearings from the granada fit?and if so maybe you can buy brackets to hang the calipers on so you can use the falcon steering arms

Can't say I ever heard anyone complain of the turn radius being too short! If I may ask, why is this bothering you?
