Fatman Fabrications A-Arms with Wilwood Disc Brakes?

Does anyone have this particular setup on their Gal?

I am considering this for my 63 but I don't know if the geometry will change or if there are any other considerations to note.

I was planning to keep the stock spindles.

i run them on my 60 with Wilwood Brakes and on my 62. You will have to get a new alignment. They will tell you that the uppers come in either 9" or 9.5". Doesn't make sense that there are 2 sizes but have had to send back one size for the other cause it didn't work geometry wise eventhough i measured.
