Deuce - I'm not much help on the Granada-Mustang spindle idea, sorry. One car I know the Granada spindles will fit is a 58 Square Bird. We just finished up with the disc brake conversion on my Buddy Steve's hardtop. Resizing the tapers IS nesessary however...

I understand that the Granada spindles will fit the early mustangs, Not sure if they will fit the MII. <img src="graemlins/pimp.gif" border="0" alt="[pimp]" />

Yes, you can adapt the GRANADA spindle to the MUST II suspension. I am not really sure about the ball joint/tie rod taper, but it is not that difficult to have resized. You can then use a TAURUS rack (rear steer) to complete it. Please tell me that now that you have not tricked me that it isn't stovebolt powered... <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />

i am sorry to say that since my 351 cleveland wouldnt fit the frame and steering the only other engine i had left over was a 454 i built for my dads impala,

We decided that he sold the 66 impala SS, and bought my 5.0L powered 65 mustang, that way i got the money and the engine i needed to build my hot rod.

If i were to stumble upon a sohc 427 ford the chevy would disappear from the shop. but not being made of money i have to make due...
