Which stub axles have you bought?

I put Xy stub axles & Discs onto my 62 falcon ute and had a very frightening car.
It bump steered about 3 feet sideways at 100KPH!!!!!!!

I replaced them with XP stub axles with Rod Hadfield's kit, which allowed me to fit hq calipers and XA vented discs on the car and have had not problems since. (Touch wood)

Steve

I am not sure exactly what you are asking here. Are your repro stubs the type that have been made to accept Falcon hubs with no modifications or are they exact copies of the original Ford stubs? If they are the latter then it will be a lot easier to see if you can exchange them for the other type and simply bolt your new hubs straight on.

Assuming you have the type that accept the Falcon hubs, are you asking what the next step is? If that is the case the usual thing is to use Holden calipers because the Ford ones are too difficult to mount. There are a number of companies that advertise in Australian Street Rodding magazine that can supply you with a calliper mount and tell you which model calliper to buy.

As your probably aware now, you need to machine a thin 'sleeve' that is shrunken onto the area where the inner bearing goes.
You will also need to machine the stub where the outer bearing fits, basically carrying the existing dia (3/4" from memory) down the shaft about 10mm so that the new replacement bearing sits closer to the inner bearing. Similarly, the 3/4unc thread will have to be 'chased' 10 mm so that the locking nut will be able to apply pressure on the bearing.
Then get yourself a New set of HQ Holden bearings and custom seal from a 'cbc' catalogue, and your right to go.

Probably sounds as clear as mud, but basically that's whas is commonly done. Best option is to just by some brand new 'rod city' units and bolt them up.

Cheers,

Easiest thing to do is contact Hoppers Stoppers who have brand new discs available which have hubs on them to fit the early stubs without any mods whatsoever. They have a complete kit available with calipers etc. They are Hotrodders too!

Thanks fo the feedback and advice....

Seemed to have solved the problem by getting sleeves pressed onto the spindles and run a Falcon inner and Holden HQ outer bearing - should be good to go
