Mustang 2 spindle question

This is likely old hat for many here but not for me!! I have an F-1 with a Must 2 front suspension already installed. It had rotor adapters to mount 5x 5 1/2 bolt pattern & they are 11". So, I wanted to go with a more normal 5x4 1/2 wheel and got some rotors from a hi perf. must 2 as they are 10 3/4" and 5 bolt while the normal must 2 are 4 bolt. The problem is that the new rotors don't fit! The spindles on the truck are about 1/2' longer than a stock must 2 and the bearings are a different size. I'm wondering if they used spindles from a Granada or Monarch?? Would they be as described??

Depending on the manufacturer and the type of MII front end you have the spindles may be different from a stock MII. Check the manufacturer for the reccomended rotors.
If it is a TCI unit with their spindles they have a list of interchanges for that stuff.

I have seen manufacturers send spacers to make stuff fit sometimes. Which one you might need is like shooting in the dark though.

Hope this helps,
Mikey

Well, the crossmember is after market but the rest is OEM Mustang except for the spindles. And the spindles appear to be OEM also but certainly not mustang due to the size diff's . Thats why I'm wondering if they are from another Ford product.

If it is front-steer (rack), they are MUST II. There was no HI-PO MUST II with 5 lug rotors.

If MUST II, the upgrade is GRANADA rotors (11").

Are there any Casting I.D. Nos. on the spindles?

Ok, resolved. What threw me off was the NAPA supplier saying that 84-86 SVO Must rotors would be the same. They weren't. The rotors that came off must be aftermarket as they are two piece with the bolt part aluminum mounting 5 1/2" bolt pattern. Now I have Granadas @ 4 1/2" and they fit just fine! Thanks for the feedback.
