Default Spindle choices

I'm designing a chassis for a slab side 289. It will resemble the Daytona Coupe design but will deviate from the original due to a fully independent suspension both front and rear. The car will weigh about 2,200 lbs.

Up front, I'd like to use a common, readily available spindle that will stand up to the abuse. The spindle would need to be compatable with a hub or rotor of about 12" (I want to use 15" FIA style wheels and the rotor/caliper must fit that wheel); the distance from the spindle/axle centerline to the lower ball joint should be around 3" or less; the distance to the upper ball joint should be around 5"; it should be front steer.

Is anyone using the Mustang II spindle? That looks like it might work.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
