    I put the Granada spindle and brake set up on a 65 Mustang and the Granada tie rod ends fit the Mustang tie rods. Maybe you could use Mustang tie rods.

    Make a shim out of a beer can to space the tie rod end up to size. Caution you MUST use a steel beer can ! :rolleyes:
     

  5. I did this years ago to a Fairlane but forgot what I did about the tie rods. I think I changed them also to match the Granada rod ends.

    try searching www.tffn.net

    It's been done a million times. I did it on my 63 sprint 'vert and the stock tie rods fit just fine, but it was a V8. If you have a 6 cyl there are solutions.
