Spindle Identification Guide (GIF)

Application

  1. Chevy 1949-54 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.
  2. Ford 1928-48 spindles are generally your best choice when using an original Ford axle or an aftermarket I-beam axle. 

Notes

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

Do you offer a Chevy Front Axle Steering & Brake Kit that uses Mustang II Rotors & Calipers? Do you offer a kit similar to this one that uses the Mustang II 9 1/4" Rotors and Mustang II Calipers so that all of the parts required to mount these items on the Chevy Spindles can be purchased in one kit?

We apologize but Speedway does not offer a complete steering and brake kit for the Chevy spindles that use the Mustang II calipers and hardware. We could however do a kit as requested but you will need to visit with one of our street rod techs to complete the order.

This Chevy front axle steering and brake kit includes the spindles for the 49-54 Chevy car and even though the king pin diameter is the same the axle boss the kingpin passes through is at a different angle and will NOT work together properly. If you have the Chevy truck axle and spindles we have the disc brake kit for the conversion. We do NOT have a kit for mounting the axle in the 210 series car. The pickup runs parallel leaf springs and the spacing between is different from the car. For an application as requested we would suggest an axle kit such as part number 91639032 and used in conjunction with the steering and brake kit number 9133901. If needed the kit can be upgraded to 11” rotors for better stopping power or even the Wilwood kit under part number 9133903.

No the tie rod will not be long enough for a 51" wide axle. We can substitute a 49" long tie rod to fit your 51" wide axle. Please specify this when ordering.
