disc brake interchange

I am wnting to know if the disc brakes on a 1974 Cutlass will interchange with a 1980's Montecarlo. I need the pads and hoses because I put 1980 Monte spindles on my 1970 Buick Skylark and now I have complete 1974 Cutlass and I want to finish off the conversion .The Monte stuff bolted right on real easy so far.
thanks, Clint

The 80 G-body spindles may bolt to a 70 A-body, but the taper on the ball joint studs is different. THIS IS NOT SAFE! Get the correct spindles or adapt the later ball joints with the correct taper.

interchange

I put the same ball joints as the spindles . I don,t want to create problems I am just wondering if the calipers are interchangeable from the 1974 Cutlass to the 1980's Monte. I will find out soon enough when I am hanging on to them and physically compare. Thanks Clint

Smart move. Most people don't realize this is necessary. I believe the G-body cars use the metric calipers, the 73-77 cars use the larger calipers.
