79' El Camino Drop Spindles?

Anyone with a 78 or 79 G body had any luck finding drop spindles? All of the sources I have found only list 1980 up spindles. It appears the hub/rotors on the 78/79s are different than the 80's up. Any help would be appreciated.TIA

The GM A Body 78-87 Malibu, Monte, Grand Prix, Cutlass, Regal, El Camino use the same front suspension.
Don't know where you searched, I found this in 10 seconds. This is not any kind of endorsement.

If the hubs and rotors are different, just grab some '80 and up hubs and rotors.

re: 79' El Camino Drop Spindles?

Just wanted to add a little more to this conversation, when to Advance Autos site looked up part numbers for my cars, Lemans 78 had different rotors and wheel bearings than 79 but 79-81 were all the same however my Olds 79-81 the same and 82 different and as a side note I found on another post the 82 Olds and a 82 S10 pickup are the same How about that? Oh and all the calipers were the same.
