There are two people that want them, Mike. I wonder if you could get enough interested people to get a group purchase together?

Could save you some bucks and get the spindles you want.

Yeah, I have actualy met several people who want them, with Mustangs and Falcon mostly. Maybe I can work something out. Even though I WASN'T impressed with their service.

Heres what I found today this is a copy of an e-mail I sent to a guy with a falcon who wants them.

I wrote:

I called FM today....I asked if they carried Granada dropped spindles? He said "only the ones we fabricate." I didn't realy understand what he meant, he was very short with me. So I asked you do have dropped spindles that will work for Granada applications? He said, "Yes the ones we make, do you want a catalog?" I asked if it had pictures that I could see what the spindles looked like. The rep said, "It has pictures of everything we carry." Seemed in a hurry?

So he is sending me a catalog free of charge. So from what I get from what he said, they no longer alter the stock spindles? When I get the catalog, and if it does have any info or pictures I will send them your way.

-Mike

Bad service is getting pretty common these days. Some guys WANT to go out of business, I guess.

Fatman makes some pretty nice stuff, a friend is building a 40 2 door sedan with Fatman frame and mustang II front suspension, it all looked real nice.

I don't think he had any trouble with their service when he ordered his chassis, they even opened up on a Sunday (appointment) so he could pick it up.

They may have been buisy when I called, took them twenty plus rings for them to get the phone...? Dono I always look for alternatives by nature I guess? I am still waiting on their catalog to make my decision.

Steve, were should I post a group purchase thread? I have recieved several E-mails with intrest towards a group purchase.

Rovic, on your tip I called a few people and none of them have seen or heard of a Versailles spindle being any higher then the Granada spindle.
The people with whom I spoke with said the only differance between the two is the lower balljoint hole.
I rechecked my measurements and a 2" will be nessesary anyway. Thanks for the help.
