    Anybody have an idea of how hard it is to use 73-87 spindles on a 66 1/2ton? As simple as switching ball joints or is the entire geometry different?

    Thanks for any help

    A buddy of mine put discs off a 72 on his 65. Atleast thats what he said. I'm not sure about the 73 and up

    the spindles off a 73+ will work if you use the iner and outer tie rods, master cylinder, proptioning valve, and ball joints.... also might need the center link
    or swap out the entire cradle
