    Mine look just like the V8 one you have pictured, but the tie rod hole seems pretty small. Do you have a casting number on the V-8 drum spindle? I am sick of the granada setup, my car drives like crap, and it should not, I got a lot of money tied up in the front end trying to make it drive better.

    Found this on chockostangs site hope helps

    The 65 66 (64 If you will), Mustangs were all C5DA Spindles, with a FEW Exceptions having C4ZA Spindles-Same Spindle, different numbers.

    ALL 64-67V8 Spindles, Disc, or Drum were the same, [color[​IMG]range]NO DIFFERENCE[/color]. Only Difference was the hardware used to attach the Calipers, Versus Attach the Drum Backing Plates. All V8 Spindles were the same from 64-69. Aka small bearing 70-73 are known as big bearing spindle

    Hope this helps.

    Correct those were your photos for the main rotor but I have machined new hubs that have a thicker flange on them due to being so thin on the od. But after doing this I scrapped the idea. Mine also uses the matching geo caliper
