Yes, we have seen this kit.
For Squarebirds, they use the original spindles, same as Scarebird.com does. I like the Scarebird setup much better because it's cheaper and stronger. The parts are nearly identical except for the rotors.

If you use Mustang rotors, your original bearings and grease seals fit. Also, the rotor snout doesn't need to be turned down to accept OEM wheels.

If you buy all your hardware at your local auto parts store, you will save on shipping heavy cast iron parts. So, the only items you really need on a Squarebird are the brackets and bearing spacers. I like many features about purchasing locally. When you buy pads for S-10 calipers, they come in many degrees of soft (all the way up to ceramic), and everyone has them on their shelf.

Hi Rob,

On the Scarebird site the link to the 58-60 Birds shows the same as the 57-68 Galaxie Full Size. Perhaps they are the same for your Bird.

One of the guys here will know for sure.
