I also have been looking into this subject for my 83 elky. What i have found is that you can swap Front brake components from an 86 corvette to and elky direct bolt ons. As for the Rotor i would assume is bigger because it has the dual piston caliper. Dont hold me to it as i am just learning this myself and havnt had the cash to go out and check these items yet. A aquantince of mine has the 2" drop spindles in the front, as do i, and not 100% sure if theres any modifications to be done for that Or if the corvette spindles will lower you car which is a possibilty. i had bought my spindles seperately for around 500$ I will let you know more information as i find more out and maybe you could do the same as i am just learning also thanks
