I don't think so, the Alcoa backspacing is too high for them to work. Spindles require like a 3.75 backspacing or higher. Alcoas are like 4.5

You have a 2wd coil front end, and he has a 2wd tbar front end


those are 2 different style spindles


and Im sure you are not running 7inch wide rims, which Alcoas are 15x7, which would then make a big difference being 4inch backspacing
