Well from the blow up pics there Stan, I think maybe the lower control arms and the spindles and caliper bracket and caliper might work on a pre 74 C-body.  The upper control arms are a bit different, but I guess they could be made to work wit the addition of a bracket?

It would be great if someone had these parts, and a pre 74 C-body, and could do a little experimenting.

It is my understanding (perhaps in error) that from '73 - up all are interchangeable which is why I was suggested to get '73 and up.
 
I ended up with a '71 set and paid through the nose!

Hell I didn't know that Snotty. . .I had a good set of 71's here with rebuilt calipers and hoses no less.

This is why the 73 C-body set-up is the coveted one.  Runs the later 74 and up rotors, which were used on almost every mopar with disc brakes up into the late 80's, which means CHEAPER!!   But they also ran the earlier pin type calipers (69-73), not the bolt down style.  The bolt downs didn't appear until 74 in cars.
