I have a 57 Desoto here with the front spindles missing. Instead of trying to find stock spindles, I would like to find later disc types. But, I have read about different height spindles changing the geometry. Are there any later ones that are bolt ons?

search on it, there are some that work, requires grinding some parts which i dont like. Spindles should be cheap from Big M. I think it changes the geometry a bit also.

I would go stock with Scarebird or AAJ.

Thanks, I have looked at the scarebird brackets and that seems like a good price if I put stock spindles back on. I was hoping to find replacement disc spindles that were correct in height. I will do some more research. Thanks for your reply.

Many have used the later F, M, J-body spindles and disc brakes. The spindles aren't the original height but the front can be aligned with them.

I think the rotors are 11", clear 14" wheels.
