When you put your 5 lug rotors on, did you switch to V8 spindles? If you did, did you change the rest of the steering to V8? If not your steering geometry is probably messed up.

since his stang is a 68, the spindles are the same six to V8. either way there is no change in steering geometry.

Well i ordered it ill post how it works
that kit you ordered is a good one to use as it will stabilize your camber settings, even if you have a tendency to bounce the front wheels off a lot of curbs. the only drawback is that the camber is somewhat harder to adjust.

And the difference for the spindles is of they were disk or drum but the kit worked for both

The kit comes with a couple different ones
yeah, the way it works is the holes in the eccentrics are drilled for various camber settings, and each hole is marked. like i said the biggest issue is that you have to pull the lower control arm bolt to adjust the camber, but once set it stays where it is.

exactly right. one nice thing is that if you had wanted, you could have used the 65-67 disc brake system with the four piston kelsy-hayes calipers if you wanted a factory system.

the wilwood kit is a good one to use, so i have no objection, unless you got the drag race kit, in which case i would recommend getting something better for the street or other uses. i will offer one suggestion, and that is to stock up on brake parts, pads, calipers, rotors, etc. as you can afford them so that when rebuild time rolls around you have the parts on hand rather than having to wait for them to be shipped.
