Spindles & caliper brackets are available thru the aftermarket----look in a Chevelle catalog
Original Parts Group----OPGI
They specialize in A-Body GM cars.

Can also use drum brake spindles, but they need to be machined for the disc brake stuff.

Rotors, calipers, hoses, bearings are available at any parts house

So many companies sell the repro disk brake spindles now that they pretty much fall from the sky. The spindles are the same as those on 67-69 Camaros, so you must not have been looking very hard. Speedway motors has the best prices on these parts I've seen. You'll need to get the spindles, dust plates, and caliper mounting brackets from a repro house. As noted above, all other parts are available at any auto parts store, as well as from online sources like RockAuto.
