If you're considering swapping your 6 cylinder to a V8,. here's some quick information.

We sell a front end 6 cylinder to V8 conversion kit - Click here

The engine of course is the first part of the swap.

Right off the bat the spindles will need to be acquired used, the front springs, the tie rods inner/outer and adjusting sleeves, idler arm, idler bracket, center link, pitman arm, the brakes, the rear end, the rear brakes, and it's likely that the driveline will have to be addressed, but not always.

Forged Spindles are available. However they are for the 70-73 based bearings so the front brakes would have to be for the 71-73 Mustang with OE disc brakes. We also sell a beautiful coilover kit from TCP. Spindles sold separately on same page.

Wilwood Brakes (70-73 #WIL-140-11074 for 12" and WIL-140-10220 for 13" Both kits are offered drilled and slotted with the -D in the part number same page)

Front Springs

We offer a complete steering rebuild with the spindles included (Manual Steering Based) here:

If purchasing separately, Tie Rods and Sleeves are here: You would base your outer tie rods on the year/model of the spindle.

If purchasing separately, Idler, Center Link and Pitman Arm

1965-66 cars use a specific rear end. It has a 56" track width and the v8 cars used an 8" or 9", specific to those year V8 cars. Even harder to find is an OE 9" one that is correct. The problem with going with later years is you will have a rear end that is wider. So the rear wheels will stick out a little bit. Can cause problems with wheel fitment going forward. Here's some good info on rear ends.

You want to have a custom rear end built for you, we can help, click these links.
