Has anyone out there done the 11" Grenada disc brake swap with 14" Cragar S/S wheels. There are several posts about clearance problems with the styled steel wheels and I was wondering if I would have clearance problems with the Cragar S/S's.

The problem with the styled steel wheels I believe is that '69 and older Mustangs had smaller hubs due to smaller wheel bearings. In '70 they were larger, so earlier wheels didn't fit. You should have no problem with your Cragar S/S as they are pretty roomy in that area. I also had Cragars on my '72 Mustang for a while, which has big hubs.

Thanks Steve. I picked up a pair of Monarch spindles and brakes yesterday for a hundred bucks. I pulled one of the wheels off and it appeared to fit ok. Just got finished cleaning and painting them. Nows the fun part, have never done any brake line plumbing before! Also I found this link that outlines the whole Granada disc process pretty well.

I have 14" Cragar GT's that clear the Granada brakes just fine. You won't have a problem.
