Suspension compatibility 1962 and 1963
Can't seem to find any info on interchangeability of 1962 and 1963 front suspension and brake components. It looks like the suspension on the 1963 is more heavy duty. So my basic question is: will the 63 front suspension components fit the 62?

The easiest way to find if the parts are interchangeable is to look at one of the on-line catalogs from the Thunderbird vendors like Macs, Bob's Bird House, etc. They will tell you exactly what parts fit what years.

I have a 62' and it has 66 disc brakes, direct bolt on with lower control arms and stub axle off the 66'.

Upper arms, ball joints and possibly spring length will be different between 62' and 63' but I imagine 65/66' should fit, but not 100% sure.
