This is all I did. I picked up a set of S-10 spindles (From a 86). Take your ball joint reamer and ream out the lower ball joint hole. Bolt it up. Now you have to remember on very important thing. When you ream out the the hole get an extra ball joint and make it so you can ream the holes out to the same place. You guys have to realize one very important thing places like MP Brakes just swap parts not many companies can affrod to make all new parts spindles cost alot to make. Even if they are made in China. If some one can tell me how to post pictures I can show you a couple of the swaps. I doing a 63 Buick Skylark with 78 Malibu spindles.

I also Have done the 12in brake swap on my S10, and now my GTO aswell. But for my GTO I want to convert the rear axle to the 12mm studs, Does anyone know what size drill to use for the 12 mm studs?
Sorry to dig up an old thread
