Re: Disc brake swap.



The short answer is yes, you can swap the spindles from the New Yorker to
your Polara, but whether or not you can still buy decent rotors and
calipers is another question.

I have the first C-body AAJ kit on the front of my '65 Polara, which Roger
developed at my behest. It has worked great, but I went that route at a
time when I thought I would always want 14" wheels and factory hub caps. I
think a little differently now, and while they work, the car could use a
bit more braking power. So I am planning to upgrade to something bigger in
the not-to-distant future.
