Mustang II Front with S10 Dropped Spindles

Did anyone watch the Muscle Car show on Dec. 24th? Anyway Lou is building a 65 Mustang and this episode was about the front suspension that he was putting in. What I know is that it is a Heidts Mustang II crossmember, MII control arms from Southern Rods and S-10 dropped spindles from Belltech.

Has anyone seen or heard of S10 spindles used in a Mustang II application like this. It has my 3 brain cells turning. Any info. would be great.

i watched what i could of it with the kids running and screaming through the house, LOL! He said the reason he used the s-10 spindles was because there are a lot more stuff out there as far as brakes and suspension stuff goes that costs a lot less. That was my understanding of what he said.

That looked to be a KILLER set-up but i for one don't have the $1800+/- for a front end, so i guess i will use what i got for now until i can get the money to someday ....... ahh who am i kidding, i will just use what i got. LOL

S10 spindles are the same as metric spindles. A common thing to do with tubuler uppers and nova lowers or chevelle lowers in circle tracking. Light brakes and cheap replacement. Pinto spindles are stronger and lighter though. But you gotta weld a brake bracket and use special bearing if you want the GM metric brake rotors with GM small metric calipers for more weight savings. We don't use brakes in circle tracking so we make things super light and save the brakes for loading on the trailer.

Heights and Fatman's makes a dropped spindle for the MII adaptable to 11 inch brakes.

Did not see the show, but on that program there has been lots of major errors stated.

You're probably right. I guess anything can be fabricated to work in some fashion. I was curious because if its all bolt on stuff, that would make life pretty easy. But then they sell aftermarket bolt on stuff for the MII/Pinto anyway. Really more curious then anything. Thanks guys.
