Glad to have you with us here at Hotrodders. Place your brake question in the Brakes forum and maybe you will get a answer to it, this forum is for introductions.

Moving to brake forum....I bought disc brake brackets from Scarebird for my Pontiac. Maybe, they have something that will work for you.

I have seen the 70s "frame" Torino stuff on 57s, and also the 71 Galaxie stuff.

Either the GRANADA or TORINO setup will work. It seems the best choice on the heavier TORINO setup is 78/79 BIRD as although the spindles are supposedly the same (all seventies intermediates), the ball joint mounting holes are drilled slighly different in different years and some applications may make it difficult to get the correct camber setting on the earlier FORD.

Isn't the Torino knuckle taller than the Granada knuckle?
