Don't hold me to this because I don't know all the facts for sure. But "early" truck spindles 47-51 or so are totally different in that the only hubs that fit in them are the 6 lug truck ones. Now, the 52-54 truck spindles "MAY" be the same as the passenger car ones. I have a set of both and as I remember they looked the same.

i have a front axle out of a 50ish suburban, so the spindles are most likely totally different from the car spindles. would car spindles fit on the truck axle? are the brakes that come on the cars better than the truck brakes?

i need an axle for a gasser, i have a truck axle and i want to do this right, how it would have been done. did guys use 50's truck axles in there chevy cars? or what did they use?
