BTW for context, my Buddy is building a 62 Skylark, and we figured 65-69 spindles and hubs would probably fit. Crawford was kind enough to PM me and let me know that 65 are different, I assume 66-69's are more consistent with later A-Body stuff..

2 different styles with the LM spindles. 66s I found could have either one of 2 styles of spindles, based on the brake shoe anchor bolt size. 1/2-20 or 5/8-18.

Don't believe the parts catalog.

Here is a discussion I started on the 2 designs.

Determine what you need and search for that design.

Later A-body front spindles are very different than the Corvair spindles.

I own a 71 Chevelle (68-72 spindles interchange) and other than the hub bearings and wheel lug pattern, everything else is different best I can tell. (Ball joints, brake backing plate, and hubs for sure)
