Manuel disc brake spindels

I have a 1967 Camaro with Manuel disc brakes with 6 piston calipers, going to be replacing them with single piston calipers and was wondering if I am going to have to replace the spindels. (Changing calipers so I can run an actual 15 inch rim with out wheel spacers)

OK, so you have large diameter discs and want to go to smaller diameter, along with different calipers to fit the smaller discs.

Are the spindles stocks 67 Camaro? Were the original front brakes disc or drum? (I just read an article stating drum/drum brakes were standard and disc/drum was optional.)

As far as I know they are stock spindels, and factory calipers and rotors from what I have read. It is a 1967 RS/SS350 camaro, just want to change the rotors and calipers and was making sure the spindels would not need changed

I think the 6 piston caliper does not float like the single piston type requires.


Did not the camaro have 15 rims, 1 piston is a huge down grade.

A resource you might look at is wilwood just to get ideas how things go together.

Well then, stock replacement rotors and calipers should work fine with your spindles and 15" wheels.
