I also need help, I am working on a 65 Impala and would like to switdh to disc. Does other spindles work or is it better to go with a kit that bolts onto the original drum spindles.

I found a kit that you bolt on for around $400.00, but was wondering will other car spindles work.

In most cases you use your spindles. All they do is supply the brackets. The spindles from a 68 Impala are the same. So most of the time you get Gm a-body calipers rotors from a full size chevy. They just did all of the homework. Thats why I started selling my own brackets.

Thanks Lou, We restore cars in Fayetteville,NC. Mainly we do 64-73 Mustangs and use the spindles from Granada's. I didn't know if other cars in the Chevy family would work on a 65 Impala.
