Does anybody know if you can make the front suspension on a 76 Torino lighter weight?
Maybe different A arms, spindles or rotors?

granada maverick or monarch spindles and rotors will work save about 25 lbs.

If you use the Pinto spindle and rotor the GM metric caliper is a light weight easy to adapt piece as well. Bolt on adapters from a number of suppliers. Good selection of pads available as well.

I have an old Monarch, Do you have to make any special changes to the tie rods?
Are the spindles taller than the Torino?
