    Everything is the same EXCEPT for the centerlink.

    Spindles may even be available aftermarket--not sure but I think I have seen them.

    Everything
    Spindles, tie rods. pitman arm, idler arm

    v8 and 6cyl have completely different steering setups
    65 v8 is all by itself and is supposed to be a better system than the 63/4 v8 steering.
    I think the 63/4 spindles are the same as the 65, but everything else changed.

    Mustang store will be your friend here-----but you will still need to get the centerlink from a Falcon supplier.

    We just did all this on our 64 ranch. I had luck with spindles on Craig's List. I don't know if anyone even makes or sells them aftermarket. Go to Falconparts.com. They have a good link to read about doing the swap. Going with mustang or Granada. Best of luck to you!!
