does anyone know...i am putting a straight drop axle front end under my truck and would like any info on which spindles would fit on a '47 ford 1 1/2 ton front axle. i dont really want to use the ol' grain truck tires and wheels so im trying to find out the best way to get a more normal size wheel on.

thanks and everyone have a good x-mas!!!:::eek:

ford king pins are .813 so anything with that diameter will work. there is a lenght difference between 37-41 and 42-48 kind pins. ford used i beams up to the 70s even though they were a twin the spindals should work i think.
