If you're going to use all new stuff with disc brakes just use the spindles the same people will have. Usually they are "40" style Ford spindles.

Yes, the chevys are stronger. Harder to find. Harder to get brake kits for. Have to be re-machined. Most are from the early fifties.

Fords 37-48 style are far more common, brake kits everywhere. New forgings available.
