Hi, has anyone used the stock height spindles from these guys?
http://www.superiorspindles.com/camarobrake6769.html

I am specifically interested in the stock height ones that use 12" rotors. If anyone has used these, what application rotors and calipers did you use?

Thanks!

Those aftermarket are not forged compared to
the stock first gen spindle.
Alternative is do a cheap Big Brake swap. TeeToe Jones has developed an adapter for the calipers.

Checkout David Pozzi web page www.pro-touring.com/tech/tech.htm

Not forged eh? Rats. I hope when detroit speed comes out with spindles they take into account the desire for bigger brakes. Those 12" 1LE rotors fit 15" rims like a glove (as in barely or not).

Maybe I will just wait.

I would just get a stock conversion that uses the 12" rotors.

Have you kept up with my CBB set-up that I have come up with that uses the 13" Corvette rotors and big wide single piston truck caliper, stock forged spindles and drum brake hubs. You can use 12" rotors by just changing the bracket a schosh. pdq67

FYI,
Second gen is not forged either. I'd go for something bolt on.
