    Looking for the left side spindle for my 1978 Ranchero. Does anyone have info on different years or models that will fit? Thanks

    The intermediate car spindles are pretty much the same, but '77-'79 Ranchero and LTD II, T-Bird and Cougar are all the same. You should post a 'wanted' thread in the ad section.

    There is a late '70s Cougar at the Roosevelt U-Pull-It in San Antonio, TX. It's listed on www.row52.com, which helps put parts seekers together with parts pullers who can pull, package and ship a spindle, after the two of you agree on prices.

    Go to that website, and follow the directions to talk with a parts puller.

    Interesting concept,maybe for future items. Took your advice and posted on parts wanted. Another member came through, he had one and found one on ebay. Turns out I'm a short drive from the ebay seller, french lake auto salvage, looks like they have a whole car for parts so a good lead. Thanks again.

    Grab what you can, even if it hurts the wallet. I got to do that last year, and still kick myself for what I left behind.

    My thoughts as well, going to grab what looks good. Maybe post some things as well, help some others out.Its getting hard finding items for these cars. Dropped car off for interior work today, if anyone is in Minnesota check out Premier Auto Upholstery. Solid dudes, great work!

    Yeah, I grabbed a bunch of stuff (only one of the Unobtainium front turn signal units, though...the other was broken). The bezels, grille, front bumper overriders, nose piece, reman distributor, passenger door, taillights, and other stuff. I needed the bumpers but they were too rusted for my friend and I to get undone, and we were running out of time.
