First question is do you have to change the spindle. If so, you may want to consider leaving it alone. Changing the spindle requires driving out the king pins. Not the easiest thing to do without taking out the I-beams and having a big press handy. Of course, if you take the I-beams out, you would be better off just swapping the whole assembly out. A lot less labour, and it gives you the opportunity to put in new pivot bushings, radius arm bushings and king pin bushings. New brake hoses and probably a bit of brake line plumbing. A new master cylinder is a must. Good time for a power booster if you have "leg-strong" brakes. Also consider an equilizer switch if it doesn't have one already. For the most part, I believe pretty much anything from 1967-1979 should fit the bill.
