'92-'96 Roadmaster/Caprice Spindles on Chevy C10?

Has anyone every used '92-'96 Roadmaster/Caprice Spindles on Chevy C10?
Sounds like a strange combination, but I'm using Chevy C10 control arms on my '37 Roadmaster. I just a bought a donor '95 Roadmaster so I have the front suspension and brakes that are in excellent condition.
The '95 control arms are way different so I cannot use them.
Questions I have with matching the '95 Roadmaster spindles to C10 control arms are:
1) The control arms on the '95 Roadmaster are angled backward and the C10 arms will be angled forward like the '37 Roadmaster. Are the spindles different to allow for this difference in control arm orientation.
2) Will the ball joints fit.
Thanks

from what I've seen from going to the 67-72 truck boards, the monteSS boards and the team chevelle boards.. as I own a 71 c-10 an '85 SS and had three chevelles.
the a body guys use the b body spindles as a cheap(er)upgrade to the all new re engineered spindle and arms they have aval..

this is basicly the same deal with the 4th gen monte SS (g body ) crowd and the g/p,cutlass,etc even the s-10 crowd as the front end is the same as a g body

the c-10 guys move to the 73-87 front set up for the disc brakes or to the porterbuilt drop member type stuff.. haven't read anything about anyone use'n the b body spindles on the c-10 yet.. but there are tons of threads on that site.. so maybe

the nascar c.o.t. uses (at least the chevys) a 62 full sized car front set up.. so arms and spindles for that and good to killer brakes will be aval. for that stuff..
