Anyone have any feedback on McGaughys 2" Drop Spindle for a '79-'81 GM F-Body? They also have a 13" disc brake kit that uses the same spindle but with the calipher mounts replaced with brackets. I believe they use '78-'88 G-Body metric caliphers, but dont have a clue as to the source of the hub/rotors.
I need to get a 2" drop while keeping the 5 on 4 3/4 bolt spacing on an '82 B-Body front end and I seem to have these choices:
A.) McGaughys or Summit 2" drop spindle for '79-'81 F-Body and stock "11 brakes. - cheapest http://mcgaughys.com/carproductsaccessories.html
B.) McGaughys 2" drop spindle/ 13" brake kit. - a little more expensive than A when buying new 11" rotors and caliphers. http://mcgaughys.com/bigbrake.html
C.) Belltech 2" drop spindle for '94 -'96 Impala SS with '90 1LE 12" rotors. - almost 2x the cost of the McGaughys spindles and 1LE rotors are almost 2x cost of the stock 5 on 5 ones
I will be using 18" rims (Torque Thrusts) probably 7"-8" wide so clearance should not be an issue.
I am pretty sure that the '77-'96 B-Body and '79-'81 F-Body front suspension/brake parts are interchangeable.
Any comments on McGaughys quality, problems etc - or Belltech for that matter? Also any other solutions that I should consider?
