Anybody know if you can use the disc brake hardware from a 68 Torino to convert a 66 Fairlane from drums to discs? Thanks.

Yes,it will work. You will need the disc brake spindles from the 68.

Thanks for the info. One more thing. The 66 has different tie rods than the 68. Would the 66 tie rods work or would I have to use the 68 tie rods? Thanks again.

What you do is use the 66 inner tierods with the 68 outer tierods. They will jive at the adjustment sleeve.
