    I have done a search in the archives but I still can't find an answer. I will soon be doing a 4 lug to 5 lug conversion. Parts are coming off a 74 four door and going on the 72. I know the rear end will bolt right in, but I was wondering about the front. Does anyone know if there is any difference there. It is drum all around. Might there be a difference in tie rods or ball joints? I think it would be all the same.:16suspect Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a 70 and I'm not sure what year the disc came from but it bolted right on with no problem. I want to say it was later year. If you would like some pics I can take some just let me know.

    I have non-power disc brakes on a 69.5, came from a '74 Comet. Fit very well, no problems and no surprizes.
