Nothing "cheap" available, priced from R25 000 upwards. Then looks to good to be
a donor vehicle. What year did disc brakes become available on them? What year model is yours?

Ecklers sell the whole bolt on kit including all the hardware for $500. My 64 SS beading cost more. Stop f&$king around and order the stuff.

Is the Constantia even related to an American GM? Supposedly, the balljoints are the same as our 1972 back Chevelles and First Generation Camaros.

My 65 Malibu has "Bolt-on" HQ/AQ front suspension and disc brakes (Kommando, Constantia, Kingswood, Monaro) Perfect fit :D :D :D

True, if you can use other bits too it would be more worth it.
