All else being equal, SN95 spindles can put you into a bolt on for the PBR brakes, so I'd vote for them

Keep working on it and keep us posted. It's a little too much engineering and fabrication for me to figure out on my own, but I'd love to copy someone else's design!

Al wrote:I measured the distance between the inner tie rod pivot points on the center link and measured ~ 25". I have several racks in the garage, but pulled the Escort rack down and measured ~ 22". So, I pulled the boots off the ends to take a look at the outer tie rods on the rack and drew up something. I can make caps that will screw onto the end of the rack in place of the Escort outers that will have a flat section with a tapered hole to accept the stock Mustang tie rod ends. The caps need to be long enough to make up the missing 3". This seems simple enough to do and will be plenty strong.

Speaking of Escorts, the pre-91's had alot of the same suspension and steering parts as the Tempo. The Tempo was afew hundred pounds heavier. Might be able to hold more weight.

Al,
Have you looked at the Pro-Engineering Bump Steer Corrector Kit?
Image

BUMP STEER CORRECTOR KITfor '64 1/2 to '70 Mustangs and Cougars. The kit relocates the outer tie rods down 1 inch and forward 1 inch. A must for competition and high performance applications. The Bump Steer Corrector Kit when used with the Neg. Wedge kit produces the ultimate Mustang front suspension. Made from quenched and tempered 4140 Chromoly steel (180 kpsi tensile strength). bolts on, no heating, bending, or spindle modification required. The Bump Steer Kit quickens the steering ratio, by approximately 1/2 turn, and reduces the Ackermann angle (great for additional cornering speed). Recommended for competition use only due to greatly enhanced steering response and some increase in steering effort. Used stock inner and outer tie rods. Specify year/model . . . . . . . . . $239.95


I thought I read somewhere that the adapters move the tie rod mounting location IN 1/4" also, but 240$ for a couple chunks of chromoly really hurt me in my wallet area..
