Question V8 Spindles?

Does anyone know where I can get a pair of V8 spindles for my 65 Mustang? Maybe even coming with drum brakes?

Ask your local Mustang club if anyone has them or try your local car club members.
I asked one of my local car club members and I got a pair for FREE, I just had to get them off my self. You never know.

You may be able to get a pair from CJ Ponies as they have a salvage yard full of junk Mustangs and you call with what you want and they will get it for you out of the yard and send it to you.

CSRP has many different kits.
Dennis will give you the best guidance to choice the right kit.
The kit with the new V8 spindles, discs, calipers, master cylinder, bearings and everything you will need is $524.

The steering arm geometry changed in 1967. I'm not saying 67-73 spindles won't work on a 64-66, but they are not ideal.

The CSRP spindles offer correct geometry for the 64-66. They also use the larger, later style bearings. Best of both worlds.

We offer new production 65-66 type spindles. They are the ones shown in the picture 2+2GT posted. They are reinforced at key points and have the larger bearing type stub axle. As mentioned above, post details about your car we can advise further.

There a many variations of the early Ford Spindles you can use to install the popular K/H 4 Piston per Caliper Disc Brakes with 11 19/64" Rotors.

A sampling in the C2OA-C3OA-C4ZA-C5DA-C60A,

All these bolt on,using the Factory 4 Piston Disc Brakes, all will work.

Yes, each will need the Tie Rods selected to fit the spindle, all will need the Alignment to be done by a "Non recent ASE Certified" alignment person.

The Factory Ford Spindles, as quoted above, will be FORGED, not just cast weaker spindles. No need to explain that.

So, many selection out there.
