I asked this on another board, but no replies.     Is there a difference between disk brake spindles from left to right?  I ask because I have tire fitment trouble on the front of the 68 cuda.   I have about 3/4 inch of clearance between my 215/75/15 tires and the front wheel opening but have about 1 inch to the rear of the opening.  I believe the brakes came off a 76 volare and I have them mounted where the caliper is on the rear side of the spindle.    Do I just have the wrong rims or do I need shorter tires?

I swapped the spindles on my 73 when I installed them. I did it by accident, but it hasn't seemed to cause any problems yet. A couple of the guys here have done it also with no ill effects.

After looking at it this afternoon, it appears my front tires are just too tall. Sucks because they still have the new tire nubs on the tread. I put them on my RR just before I sold it to buy this cuda.

Thanks for the reply Jim, I think I met you at the Mopar Nats in 2004. You were accross from us at the BigBlockDart tent while I was at the Cope Racing Trans tent and I snapped a couple pics of you and your dart. I had a 67 red conv for a first car. I think that was you.

Lars, also, thanks for the reply. I will have to get different tires , ie, shorter. What is the widest tire to fill the wheel well for handling, and the tallest too?

That would probably have been Herb Beer (Dart67)...

Thanks, It looks like the swinger's front fender opens up more at the leading edge than the cuda does. Might just be the angle but it looks larger.

Nope, didn't meet me at the Nats. I've never been. It's a long haul from here in California.
Must not have. Now I notice that yours has a stock hood, where the person I met had a sixpack hood. Oh well.

That's why I was asking, because my calipers are on the back side.
