Online ball joint specification (size) chart?


I remember seeing a chart online showing different GM ball joints. It listed the stud diameters, lengths etc. I can't seem to find it now. Does anyone know of a site that has such a thing? It would basically be 60's - 70's and maybe some 80's ball joint specs for GM's

A friend wants to do a disc brake conversion on a 61 Biscayne and he is on a very limited budget. He is very mechanically inclined, so that is not the issue. Finding something that might work is an issue and he is more than willing to adapt.

Thanks

As to the 61 Biscayne disc brake conversion, stock spindles and steering arms. CPP caliper brackets, 79-81 malibu rotors and calipers.

it has worked out perfect for my 64. AUTOCITY GLASS in Minnesota also sells a complete kit at a reasonable price.

Carl... I have done this conversion on my 66 along with drop spindles. There are numerous kits out there it appears, but most of the kits are re-sale ones from CPP. Autocity does not have the COMPLETE kit. But if you don't know what you need you won't know until you get the car apart. I ordered from AC and had to chase down parts at CPP. The CPP kit uses 92 S10 calipers...

 Thanks but the 66 is a whole different thing vs the X frame conversion.
