What FRONT spindles do I need?

The kit was designed to utilize the most common spindle for the vintage Mustang, Cougar and other small Ford cars..... the 5 lug drum brake spindle. One point to take note of is that for Mustang applications from 1964 - 1967 the drum and disc spindles were the same at the brake mounting interface. For those year applications, you can simply unbolt the OE caliper bracket and bolt on the Vintage Venom caliper bracket. For later years, if you have drum brakes...you are good to go. If you have OE disc brakes, you will need to install a set of drum brake spindles in order to utilize our kits. Drum brake spindles can easily be found at vintage salvage yards or on E-bay.



Tire size info:

Suggested front tire sizing for 1964 - 1966 cars is 225/45/17. However, on 1967 - 1973 cars can use up to 245/45/17. While it was not necessary on our 1967, depending on fitment of fenders, some slight lip rolling may be necessary. On all years, rear wheel wells can accommodate larger tires than front wheel wells.
