granada swap help

I got a complete set of 11 inch front disc brakes off a Granada/monarch that tags said it was a 1980. Now I cleaned it all up and bought new rotors, but got 10" rotors from the parts guy after telling him they were 11" so I go back and he tells me only 10" are only listed and it must be a 1980 LTD, so I said "O.K". I get them home put in bearings/seals and they still hit the backing plates and are too long for the spindles. Can someone please give me the right info or part numbers to get this done right.

1980 Granada front rotors are 11" (by .810 min but check that)

use google,

type in: 1980 Granada front brakes

You will get a bunch of good "how to" and possible problems websites on doing the conversion.

10", maybe(?) 1980 Lincoln Versaille rear rotors, I don't know. Yup, you can convert your rear drums to disk also. They are pretty hard to find parts. If you see one, grab the parts, you will make a killing on e-bay.
