After reading a few posts on this subject I decided on doing the caprice spindle swap on my 64. None of the posts I looked through had enough pics that's why I'm posting pics as I go along.


I bought the brake booster and master of ebay. the spindle's from the junk yard


here's how the drum brakes looked with out the rim



took out the stok spindle

from the previous post's I read one problem was the tierods being to long and not being able to adjust them for aligment so I just cut them 1inch each rod and it looks like its prety straight to me



after being cut 1inch here's the diference



this is how it looks with the spindles and tierods
