Any V8 running 6 cylinder spindles (4 lug)

Recommended Posts

Hey hows it going guys out of curiosity anyone with a V8 and still running 6 cylinder spindles? (4 lug drums)

or has anyone made the change to the Wilwood 4 lug disc brake kit available? and how do they feel, are they good when braking?

I bought V8 spindles with drums and I know they are stronger and plan on converting to disc but just curious as to weather the kit works well!

Let the discussion began!

The spindles and the hubs can be interchanged.   My '68 has 6 cylinder spindles with a 5 lug SSBC disc brake rotors installed.  My '70 had disc brake spindles, and I reverted back to drum brake spindles so I could use late model Cobra brakes with the Mustang Steve bracket kit.   I depends on the inner and outer wheel bearing diameter.  Many of the old 5 lug hubs will fit on the 6 cylinder spindles.   I do agree that there are certain spindles that have a lot more meat to them, that make them more durable.   

I have an original set of 1970 disc brake spindles for sale if you are interested.  Just PM me.
