The spindles from the 70 Camaro will bolt up, but the calipers will now be on the front, requiring new brake lines and hoses (please make sure they clear wheels in all positions!). The geometry of the suspension will also be upset because the '70 spindles are taller. The better solution is to use the disc brakes (spindles/calipers/rotors) off of the '70 - 72 Chevelle, Lemans, Custlass, Skylarks. They are a 'bolt-on' swap and will accept your current Camaro steering arms so geometry won't change.
