Firstly My son owns a 1967 Impala SS Coupe.
Some time ago we replaced all the suspension bushes, shocks, pads and rebuilt the callipers on the front of the car.
It came with what I think is Factory fitted disc brakes.
My problem is :
When replacing the wheel bearings we found out the spindles were two different sizes, i.e. the bearings were not the same replacement size.
Now, we are looking at replacing the original disc brakes with a wilwood set as the callipers are in need of re sleeving and it is way too expensive in Australia to do, and the callipers are "Delco Moraine" and not "Girling" as suggested in other forums.
My question is does he have a disc spindle one side and a drum one on the other or are they from two different cars all together? (Chevelle?)
To eliminate this would be to just fit one that matches one already on the car and replace it, right? the thing is they are about as common as "Rocking Horse Manure" in Australia if you get my drift.......
What would be the best after market spindles to fit with Wilwood brakes, are looking at kit number 140-12021 recommended for drum brake replacement and he has 15" rally wheels already on the car.
Any help / advise would be greatly appreciated.
Many thank in advance,
