Does anyone have pictures of the spindles for 9 inch brakes, and 10 in brakes, for "A" bodies? I have 9 inch brakes on my 64 Valiant, and am planing on upgrading to 10 inchers. I have several spindles that look different then the 9's, but don't know what they are from. They are very different then the 9's, but are on a 66 or older "K" member. The game plan is to do a complete "bench" rebuild of this "K" member (steering, suspension, and brakes), then swap it out, as the car
needs some suspension work, also. This way I can keep cruising while I work on it. Thanks.

IIRC, the 10" spindle takes a bigger bolt than a 9".

Yes, bigger bolts that hold the BJs and bigger hole for the UBJ pin/shaft.

The spindles I have look totally different in the steering knuckle area.

Notice how the upper ball joint stud hole is twisted around 90 deg compared to the 10 inch one.

Yep, that was my concern. Wanted to make sure the ones on the "K" member were correct, before starting to order parts.

Thanks
PS: You going to the Florida Mopar show this weekend? I'll be there with my 66 Valiant.

No not this year my rheumatoid arthritis is going to keep me away too much walking. I use to go to that show and the turkey rod run every year.
