If your going to use spindles that had an 8-bolt pattern the 6-bolt rotors may not work, I'm not sure, as I believe they accommodated 3/4 and 1-ton chassis. Everybody I know utilized the spindles that accomodated the 5-bolt pattern. Cross reference that with Advance Auto or some other jobber to be sure. However, the rest of the parts will work.
Thanks again for your info it is very helpful. I will see what i can figure out. I might be able to get a 81 five lug chevy for about $300. it's been caught fire and the inside is toast and the motor is gone but the brake booster and things i would need are still there. So $300 is cheaper than the set up for a new system. Thanks for sharing you info.
