16" wheels on an 83?

I tried to mount my 16" snowflakes on my 83 this weekend and they didn't fit. I'm planning to change spindles and upgrade the brakes. Has anyone done this? Are the lower control arms the same?

Thanks,
Joel

*head scratching* They didn't fit? Where did they not fit? I stuck a set on an 85 before. The 83's may have different axles in them though. A good way to check is to look at the "hat" on the front rotor (where the wheel bolts). How tall is it? It may be the shorter Mustang type. The swap to the later set-up is fairly easy though.
