five lug conversion questions

I bought a 72 Vega wagon GT and I want to switch
to the five lug s-10 brakes.
Are there any side
effects like fender rubbing or turning circles or ???

What does it take to put the S-10 ball joints in the
factory a-arms? I'd rather not use the spacers...
I
hope to have the car up and running this spring
(bought it rolling) with a alum head 350. Can these cars
handle good with a 350 in it? I drove it before I bought
it with a different 350 in but it needed
tierods.
Thanks all.

Mike,
The Ball Joint Adapter Sleeves are THE
way to go. In fact, Cadillac once used a similar
device on their cars. It is fast, easy and 100%
reliable.

To install the S-10 ball joints in the Vega
Control Arms takes a good deal of labor, a skilled
Heli-Arc weldor and access to a vertical mill.


Visit www.v8monza.com abd browse through the S-10
conversion pages. Most of your questions will be answered
there.

Best of luck with your project...Robert
