"The DOZA Spindles were introduced for the 70 Mustang, Cougar, Torino, Montego model year. They are refered to as the "Big Bearing" spindle as the Bearings are a tad bigger than the basic same single piston disc brakes of 68 69."

So same as 68 except for the bearings?. Single piston disc brakes on mine.

Thanks

just to add some more useless info, in 1969 the Boss 302 used a different spindle, the "KKX" Spindle. It used larger bearings than the standard 69 Mustang. Mid year 1969, all Shelby's got the "KKX" spindle as well, as they were using 15" rims as a standard, where the norm was still 14". The "KKX" spindle was also referred to as the "Big" spindle, which was the predecessor to the 1970 DOZA Spindle.

So, unless you are doing the car for Concours, somebody upgraded the spindles for track events and/or autocrossing. It's a good modification.

Quote from Chock"Only difference is in the Bearing/Spindle Diameter change on the 70 Model Year, and a Tie Rod Pin diameter increase of a few thousands," So that means 67 outer tie rod ends have pins too small for the spindle so I need a 70 outer tie rod end to work correctly?

I bought 67 tie rod ends, when I went to install I had to shim under the nut to get them to tighten up. They did tighten up but for 35 bucks I'd get the correct ones if I need to......

1970s did have a bigger tie rod. But I think the adjustment sleeve and inner tie rod are also different from earlier cars. There might be an adapter shim available that fits in the spindle tie rod hole. Seems there was an adapter for Granada brake swaps. If the car has disk brakes they must be from a 70-73. If it has drum brakes it may not matter except for the tie rod issue.

Using Rock Auto as a guide, 70 outer tie rod ends use same adjustment sleeve as 67. 11/16 thread. Different part numbers but the numbers are close to the same.

Get the correct tie rods, I am the Crowned King of Mickey Mouse hack jobs but even I don't mess with steering or brakes. Cut no corners (so-to-speak)...
