Item Details

37-41 Ford Spindles, Specify bolt pattern,
50" Wide axle - 58 1/4" hub to hub.

Notes

  1. If using steel wheels with Wilwood kit, you will also need to purchase (2) steel shims part 835-3007500. These shims will prevent steel wheels from galling the aluminum hub.
  2. 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.

We do not stock a 52" axle but we can build it as a custom length for you. It is $25 extra for the custom length axle. Custom lengths are only available in a straight axle (no custom length drop axles.)

If you measure hub face to hub face where your wheels currently mount now that will tell us the correct width. The 48” axle width nets 56 ½” track width and going down to a 46" axle nets 2” less (54 1/2") and so on. If you get the hub to hub and the wheels set where you like them then you can go by the available measurements to determine which size you want.

Most of our customers doing a gasser set up on the early Nova’s use a 46” axle in conjunction with the smaller wheel and tire combinations. In addition you may want to substitute in the 29” springs as your wheel to bumper dimension is fairly close on the early Nova’s and this allows keeping the spring behind the front bumper.

The Ford version uses Ford spindles and 11" rotors. The Chevy version uses Chevy spindles and 9 1/4" rotors. Both versions are available in 5 on 4.5" and 5 on 4.75" bolt patterns.
