Use narrow a-arms to get -5/8 on ea. end to get your track width
9" rotors instead of the usual 11"

We will be installing this front end next week..I'll keep everyone ( that cares)
posted.

Thanks for all the posts!
I'm curious as well, I have a '63 American that I'm going to be swapping front ends on soon. I have an M-II style clip from RCMotorsports in my Maverick and they have agreed to build one for my Rambler when I get to that point. The rails are the same width on the Maverick, my rotisserie bolted right up with one new hole per side to match the bumper bracket spacing. Here are pix of the RCM front clip and my American...
