Are 1968 Tbird Discbrakes a bolt in on a 1965 Country squire Wagon?

I have been given some 68 Tbird Disc brakes complete with spindles, is this a direct bolt in? I have looked elsewhere on line and have gotten mixed reviews. any advice will be gladly accepted.. if they don't work, what is the best bolt in "all ford" option? I have heard the later model full size cars will work also . I just happen to have been given this setup so I wanted to check first.. thanks Mike

I think the 69 - 71,2 full size Ford front disc parts would be as direct a swap as there is. The 68 T-Bird calipers look to be the same as 70 Galaxie/LTD calipers.

Your car has drum brakes, so then you'd swap the T-Bird disc spindles in to replace the drum brake spindles. The next concern comes with making sure the steering arm is the same and the tie rod will connect properly to the spindle. You want the geometry to remain the same so you don't have bump steer, ackerman and alignment issues that can't be adjusted out.
