63 Buick Le Sabre Disc Brake Swap

I HAVE POSTED A COUPLE OF TIMES ON DISC BRAKE SWAPS. THIS IS THE ONE I JUST STARTED. THE CAR IS 63 LE SABRE IT WAS 4-LUG 13 INCH TIRES DRUMS ALL THE WAY AROUND.




THE SPINDLES ARE FROM A 78 MAILBU I HAD TO SWAP SIDES BECAUSE IT IS REAR STEER. I USED THE BUNGS FROM A WINSTON CUP CAR. (UPPERS ALL THE WAY AROUND) I HAD TO REAM THE BALL JOINT HOLES AN THE OUTER TIE ROD HOLES.



THIS PICTURE SHOWS THE UPPER CONTROL ARM AND A BALLJOINT BUNG IN A PLATE THAT I MAKE. SOMETIMES I CAN RE-USE THE STOCK CONTROL ARMS. I USE THE PLATE WHEN I CAN NOT USE THE STOCK ARM. I'LL POST SOME MORE PICTURES OF EVERYTHING TOGETHER.
