I'm doing a disc brake conversion on my 65 and I've found the the bottom 2 bolts on my stock spindles are different sizes on each side? The ones on the passenger side are bigger than the ones on the divers side? It looks like I may have to drill out the smaller side to make the new bolts in the kit fit? I just find it strange to only have to do one side? Any thoughts are inputs?
Thanks

You know these old cars, anything is possible. I would guess one spindle had a bearing go bad at some point in time and ruined it. Just my thinking on this one would be someone went to the local pick-a-part and maybe got a spindle from a different year or model. Just me guessing, but the one with smaller holes would be my thought since you say your kit bolts are too big. And most likely drilling it out will work but I'm not very well versed on models older than 70. Worst case will be finding a replacement that will work without a drill.
