`70­ 81 camaro front spindle we really chose this spindle for the benefit of our customers we like these front-steer spindles because they offer an 11 or 12-inch gm brake package with 2-15/16-inch diameter caliper pistons vented rotors on the same balljoints using either the 11 or 12-inch spindle these very popular balljoints were used by gm on the mid-sized cards from `73­ 88 and on the `77­ 88 caprice/impalas 12-inch disc brakes most with 5-on-5 bolt pattern and the `70­ 80 camaro with 11-inch brakes 5-on-4 ¾ pattern what does this mean to you the brake options using these spindles are better than anything else over the counter we use very common easy-to-find parts at the junk yard or over-the-counter at any parts house with our product line you can have either 11 or 12-inch delco caliper disc brakes without having to change a thing this caliper applies much more pressure on the rotors than later downsized versions this also means to customers on a budget that buying our economical stage i kits lets you save about $800 over the complete stage ii every kit is available in a stage i form the stage i allows you to provide spindles rotors calipers balljoints and rack from a donor car or directly over the counter from any parts house in the usa or canada all of our ifs kits are alignable at any frontend shop or gm dealer providing part numbers speeds up your order
