Monte Carlo Spindles Interchangability??

I want to replace the stock front spindles on my '80 Monte Carlo chassis with 2" drop spindles. Since I am replacing the spindles, I thought that I mights just as well upgrade to 11" rotors (the stock rotors are 10 1/2"). The wheel clearance with the larger rotors would not be a problem, since I am going to 17" wheels

I found a "Disc Brake Kit" that has the whole setup (2" Drop Spindles, 11" Rotors, Calipers, Bearings, Seals) for a '64-'72 "A" body Monte. Supposedly, a lot of the "A" and "G" chassis parts are interchangeable.

Can anyone help with any advice/recommendations as to what would be involved and/or if its wothwhile (or can even be done) to replace the stock spindles, rotors and calipers with those as I have described above?

thanx in advance for any help!!!!

Do some searching of brake swaps on Those guys know their stuff!

Me I put b-body spindles with 12" brakes on my s10 (same front suspension as your g-body). It required using a custom length upper control arm that I got from Global West. You can use drop spindles from a 96 Impala SS (also a b-body).
