ericnova72 Go to www.v8monza.com, all the info you seek is there. The S-10 swap requires you to use the S-10 spindle, a '75-up Vega/Monza lower ball joint, and a set of the tapered ball joint stud adapters sold at V8Monza.

Your other choice is to look for '75-up Monza spindles and brakes, these have a better vented rotor and better caliper, but are still 4 bolt wheel pattern. Getting pretty hard to find in usable shape however.

The S-10 swap is really the most economical way to get 5 bolt wheels and better brakes and is pretty easy to do.

Here ya go:

http://www.centricparts.com/

Click on the "Select your vehicle" button on the left side of the page and a new window will open that allows you to select the part (rotors, calipers, drums, etc) and year/make/model. The resulting list will provide links to images of the parts.

Here's a hint. Go to Rockauto.com and look up the inner and outer wheel bearings for both vehicles. If they are the same, there's a CHANCE that the rotors fit. If not, there's no chance at all.

Of course, the even more obvious problem is that the caliper mounts are integral to the spindle and the S-10 rotors are larger than the Vega rotors, so there's no way to move the calipers to fit.
