    re: the wheel hubs, don't the rotors have the studs in them? Or are you doing a C5 brake upgrade? If you just want OEM, then you can get the rotors any parts store or online like at rockauto.com

    re: shocks. What kind you want? If you just want OEM, then see above.

    bolts for subframe to body - you can use grade 8 hardware from any home improvement store or find some at a place like amkproducts.com. How are the bushings?

    Good luck!

    The rotor fits on the spindle shaft and will have the studs in them to mount the wheels.

    If all you care about is getting the car on wheels, then shocks are not needed right now. Just get some rotors and some frame to body bolts. Do they not have junk yards in Montreal?

    You might post this in the Swap Meet section.

    Also don't forget that 70-78 rotors are different than 79-81. Not sure what you are working on but just a heads up. Ok I see it's an 81, so you want a 79-81 rotor.

    If you just want to get it off the ground, use a couple of jack stands. That will give you time to get a plan and some funds. You don't want to cause yourself a lot of re-work by installing the subframe without bushings, etc. using shocks, old SF bolts, etc from parts cars will cause you problems later on. Those parts can be bought new fairly cheap. The hubs you're looking for are the rotors. Even if you get a used set, they will need to be turned. For about the same price you can buy new ones.
