Has anyone attempted to swap mustang ii spindles in place of stock abe spindles? I know the ball joint tapers are the same. Am I way off in left field here? Some of the aftermarket k members use the mustang spindle, just trying to get some information. Thanks

I have an aftermarket k member in my car. It is built with a body spindles. I have a new set of strange race brakes on them . This car is being built to run drag week/race week types of events. I don't trust the small non vented rotors on the drive portion of the event. Last year years there were some mountain roads that I'm sure would have cooked the brakes off the car. I have access to some mustang ii spindles and brakes, but was curious if the swap was plausible, before pulling stuff apart.

Would a Dr Diff brake kit for Abody spindles solve the problem? Disc spindle or drum? Defeats the purpose of use what you can put your hands on I know.

I use Mustang II spindles on my HDK k member. Not sure what you are using for an aftermarket k member though
