Hello
I have a question regarding a disc. brake conversion. I have installed spindals and a disc brake set up from 1974 Torino. It assembled, however, when it came it time for alignment with all the shims removed, I still had 1 1/2 degree camber positive. The book says it should be a 1/4 to 1 degree positive. I read in the tech. dept. that this set up should work and I do not know why I am having these problems. All suspension components are brand new and I have installed a toe in stabilizer bar. I would love to entertain feed back on this problem if any of you have done this in the past. My car is a 1964 Galaxie 500 XL. I am doing a frame off restoration. I need to fix this before I go to paint within the next month.

Thanks.

I am new to the forum so any input would be greatly appreciated.

not my special car, but don't the 63/64's have those off set bushings on the "A" arms, front suspension? could that have some to do with it?

Yes they do but the toe in bar won't allow them to move. The bar has holes in it with a specific distance apart. The reason for this bar is to stop changes in caster and camber when heavy braking and ties the two A arms to operate together. Thanks for the quick response.

Hello

Thanks for the links. I would still like to here if someone has done this to a 1964 Galaxie and what donner car they used. Also find out about any other problems to look for.

Yeah, I remember this subject, and it was EXTENSIVELY investigated and I believe solved. Look at that thread. It is long and very informative.
