Twin I beam spindles on a solid axle

Will twin I beam spindles on a solid axle? If they will it seems like it could be a low cost option for disc breaks.
Thanks
Shane

I seriously doubt it

I believe that the angle of the kingpin is different ... and the size of the kingpin is different also.

Hey Shane,

Did you try to do a Google search for this question? I've never heard of it or seen it done but maybe one of the 4x4 or F-150 groups on the web has discussed it.

I have been looking at this and I think it could be done but it is not a backyard deal as I would need to make axle ends to accept the Ford spindles..That requires a lathe and bridgeport to machine those ends which would then be welded into a tube axle..

The next question is why?? the truck spindles are heavy and the replacement calipers and rotors are not all that much cheaper than what I can get in aftermarket early ford stuff..
