Hey guys,newbie here with my first post! I am curently working on a small project with an AMC Pacer front end. After spending some time reading some of the threads here I noticed some of you guys have the same front end. I was hoping you could point me in the right direction as to where is the best place to find parts. I have been able to obtain a complete front end rebuild kit from Kantner Restorations. However I would also like to rebuild the calipers and replace the discs. I would also like to either replace or have the rack rebuilt. from what I have read, there is some interchangability between Ford, GM and Pacer. Is this true? If so what make and year would I ask for when oredering new parts? I would love to hear your solutions. Thanx guys I really apreciate your help. And please don't just say put a Mustang II in it.

the rack is the biggest issue with the Pacer front. it is no longer available. most everything else still is. and you might even find a diffrent rack that may work, but it won't be a bolt in.. if your rack works like it should, don't worry about it...

AMC Pacer parts
I was just on Autozone.com and they have alot of available parts listed for the Pacer frontend. Including a new manual Rack for 143.00 + 14.00 for a core charge!!! so according too that they are available. If not then checkout Blazer Auto or American Parts Depot.

pacer front rotors
have a complete set of old rocket 5 spokes mags, rear end or third member is a gm 10 bolt mags fit fine, would love to use same mags on front. wondering what gm front rotors would interchange with pacer spindles. building a 46 chevy pickup with a new 305 crate with turbo 350. power rack will require rebuilding

No GM rotors will interchange. You can take the Pacer rotors to a machine shop and they should be able to press the old studs out and drill the GM pattern between the old one, then press in new studs. I wouldn't try this myself -- the pattern must be perfectly concentric.
