I'm leaning towards buying this kit for my 62 wagon, which I'm gonna use with the CPP mini subframe kit. Anybody use this one before? Any thoughts on using dropped spindles with those tiny gen I wheel wells?

Thanks,
Dan

That kit is fine for a street machine and is a good value. If you want better braking they have a 13" big brake kit, but it only fits 17"+ wheels.

I don't think I'm in need of the big brakes for this grocery getter, but it's a cool option. Anybody have any experience with dropped spindles?

Thanks,
Dan

I would avoid this kit if you plan to run a larger diameter wheel, like 17", because you will need more than 3 1/2" backspace.
Good point- make sure you get the "zero offset" disc brake kit.

I bought the zero offset kit from Cpp with 2" drop spindles. Everything fit great.

I might be too low now with lowered springs and drop spindles. 2" didn't seem like alot until I bolted them on.

Maybe I'll go with the stock spindle kit they sell. I have a set of 65 spindles and steering arms.

Thanks for all of the advice!

If you decide to go with drop spindles make sure you ask for the revised caliper brackets or you will have issues with the calipers touching the upper control arms and it will be very difficult to get the caliper pins out.
