el camino/ s10 front spindles

It is my understanding that there is a way to use certain S-10 front spindles that are for anti-lock systems in my '82 El Camino.
If anyone can confirm or refer me to a site that discusses this issue it is appreciated.
I have installed the '09 Pontiac G8 independent rear in the chassis and need to do the front brakes now.

S-10 spindle is a direct fit and identical to the G-body spindle in all but one area...the steering arm is shorter on the S-10 spindle. S-10 steering arm is 6-3/4" long, G-body is 7-1/4" long. It will quicken your steering up a little bit.

Wow, just the info I needed. Would you know what year in particular for the S-10 spindle? 99 or so?

I don't know the particulars on the anti-lock parts of the S-10 spindle years, but for the S-10 spindle in general the ball joint attachment points and other dimensions are the same for the entire production run of the S-10. You should be able to use any S-10 spindle you want, just pick one from a year with anti-lock brakes if that is the feature you are after.

end result

It turns out that the stock El Camino can be retained with the use of the 99 S10 backing plate/speed sendor ***'y and S10 rotor. Fits like a glove!!
