disc brake conversion question

889 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Kory
does anybody know if there are any other cars that are compatible with the mustang spindles. i want to do the granada conversion but i can't find any of them. is there any other ford besides the granada, monarch, comet, versailles, and the cougar that will work. the mid 70's thunderbird has the tie rods on the back side of the spindle. will they work or is the ball joint size different? also are there any other disc brake rear ends that will work besides the versailles? how about the continetals? i only have an 8" rear so buying a kit won't help much. any help appreciated. i know how to do the swap but i am trying to find other cars that i can find. thanks

Try going to and do a search for Granada or Mercury Monarch in your area. I found 3 within 100 miles of home on there. One day, I just went driving around some of the back roads here and found 4 more. This will give you a complete set and visual of how it all goes together. You might (probably) need to rebuild most of it.
