I run a driveline brake so I will be removing all of the brake components from the front and running SS wheels, my question is can I put GM rotors on 80's Ford spindels without modifications? I guess I will be swapping out yhe stock a arms and spindels for 80's a arms and spindels...
No. The old style has the bolt down/castle nut setup from the upper a arm ball joint through the top of the spindle. 92 and up bubbles all have the through bolt with lock nut holding the ball joint in.
The good thing is that the lowers are the same so you would just have to change out the spindles and upper a arms if you were to do a conversion.
Ford and lincoln have the same size a arm. They will bolt right on to a 1996 and older bubble. Newer than 1997 the a arms mount on cups, so you have to modify the a arm. It isn't hard to do. Ps I might be off by a year for the design change, but it should be obvious when you look at it.

Anyone actually run the 57-64 factory assisted steering setup with the power cylinder on the center/drag link? Id like to use it with 70's GM powersteering pump.. If anyone has actually ran a car with it or seen one run .. Id like to know if it actually was worse then running a manual setup and where it failed.. thanks
I always took off the ram, and just ran them that way. Just like normal steering that way. So I really couldn't help with your main question. But just pushing the cars around, before they ran and I hadn't taken the ram off, they took both hands to steer.
