What's in the Box

Info

Speedways exclusive steering & brake kits for 1937-48 Ford spindles save you time and money by combining all necessary parts into one part number. Each kit includes premuim Wilwood brake components, spindles, flat steering arms, tie rod assembly and hardware. Hubs are drilled for both 4-1/2" and 4-3/4" bolt patterns. Must be used with a 15" or larger wheel. For use on cars up to 2800 pounds with rear discs or on cars up to 2400 pounds with rear drums. Kits can be used with either manual or power boost master cylinders.

Features these Wilwood components:

  • 4-piston Forged Billet Dynalite Calipers
  • 10-3/4" diameter x .38" thick solid steel rotors - black finish
  • Lightweight clear-anodized aluminum hubs

Choose:

  • Traditional or cross steering
  • Chrome or plain steering arms and tie rod cross bar  

Traditional steering arm for left front wheel NOT included with kit.

Item Details

Fits 48" kingpin-to-kingpin axles.

Application

Cross Steering vs. Traditional Steering

Traditional steering provides an original, period look, but will only work in these applications:

  • Four bar setup with '68-'73 Mustang box
  • Split wishbone or hairpin radius rod with reversed Corvair or '48-'56 Ford Puckup steering box
  • Parallel Steering Set-Up Guide

Cross steering (using a Vega box) is the preferred method for nearly all cross spring, beam axle suspensions. Ford used this design from 1935-on.

  • Less bumpsteer
  • More comfortable steering column angle
  • Frees up foot pedal / bellhousing room
  • Cleaner vehicle profile 
  • Cross Steering Guide

Notes

  1. Chevy-style spindles are specifically designed for use on tube axles. A shorter, thicker axle stub makes this a slightly stronger spindle ideal for use with heavier street rods. Ford-style spindles are generally your best choice when using an original Ford axle or an aftermarket I-beam axle.
  2. For use on cars up to 2800 pounds with rear discs or on cars up to 2400 pounds with rear drums.
  3. If using steel wheels with this kit, you will also need to purchase (2) steel shims part 835-3007500. These shims will prevent steel wheelsfrom galling the aluminum hub.
  4. Rubber brake hoses generally cannot be adapted to Wilwood calipers. The caliper inlet fitting is a 1/8-27 NPT. The preferred method is to use steel adapter fittings at the caliper, either straight, 45 or 90 degree and enough steel braided line to allow for full suspension travel and turning radius, lock to lock.

I do not have a kit set up with these components for a 46" axle. If you specify that you would like this kit for a 46" axle when ordering we can change the tie rod length so that it will be correct.
