13 INCH WHEELS TO 48-FJ CROSSMEMBERS

        FE HUBS. Must be early FE - small race bearings go straight on, with original brakes using FE-FC drums, on early front ends with knee-action shocks, no clearance problems are encountered. But with "FJ" type, upper arm spreader bar has to be removed and relocated in further.

FE-EK,

        KING PINS, Fit up king pins, but will have to change upper outer pivot to FJ, FE, FC, in FB - EK models, all late king pins have to be bent for correct chamber adjustment (Normal wheel alignment pratice) late king pins raise front of vehicle approx 2 inches, so lowered springs need to be used. Late king pins need lock stops on back of stub ground down to retain full steering lock. Late EK lines for brakes are small 3/16 same as EH on.

EH-HD,

        KING PINS, Small, same fitment procedure as above but difference in lines 3/16 inch > 1/4 inch, PBR brake booster unions are suitable to match up lines or the early line (48-60) can be rethreaded to fit late model wheel cylinder.

NOTE......All late model king pins widen track approx 1-1/2 inchs per side.
