    It's funny, I have had the opposite experience buying "New" 2" drop spindles. Pretty bad when the manufacturer cannot tell you the qualifying (casting/forging) material used for the knuckles (not the spindles) ...I had called after drilling/trimming them for the big disc setup, porous and soft, looked great, and they were absolute Junk!!. No Chinese spindles going on my ride!! and back to the original 1972 spindles I went, no issues. JMHO&E

    Well if you're gonna run B body spindles then get the ones made for 12" brakes.

    Oh I agree original quality is better, I meant the condition of used part are overstated and exaggerated most of the time. "Good condition" means unusable.

    STD b-body spindles are 99% the same as the F-body

    I think the 11" brake b body spindles would use your stuff. but if you step up to the 12" version you'll need rotors and some bearings.

    A b body one would have been used as well. Really shouldn't be hard to find a spindle
