A buddy of mine owns a 70 XL with drum brakes and wants to switch to disc.The question I have is can he use the spindles and calipers and all off of a 73 LTD or a 76 Granada?
Thanks in advance

No to the Granada parts for sure.
The 73 LTD parts would work, but the rotors have a larger 5 on 5 bolt pattern.
