It's been a long time since I did one;and mine were all 63-66 c-10s

I believe the balljoint & tierod tapered holes were the wrong size. Might be just one balljoint, upper or lower, and I seem to recall swapping the a-arm on lower or upper. Sorry I don't have good info, but that swap has been done by many....maybe someone will post the correct info.

I also recall some sort of tierod adapter setup to go from small taper to big. But I found a center link from a 66 c-20 that had big tapers to bolt it all together without store bought stuff.

Best way is use 71-72 c-10 discs and get the proportioning valve too.

I don't know if you swapped the rear bolt pattern yet? The 69 & older c-10 has "short" axle shafts and you can't put in the 71 & up 5 lug shafts. The 70 had long axles so you can swap in the 71-up 5 lug shafts.

Upper and lower control arms,
Spindle
Master cylinder and booster

From what i have been told it is a bolt in from 1963 to 70

You can get more info on this at the 67-72chevytruck.com

I plan on doing this to my 64 c-10 short wide (for my son)

You will then have the rear axle to deal with
