New 12'' rotors, calipers, pads,etc....

I finally got the 12'' rotors on my 67 impala. The brake set up is from a 69/70 I found all but the rotors at a swap meet for 200.00 A friend of mine here in Youngstown re-drilled a set of 5 on 5, 12'' rotors for the now 5 on 4 3/4, and reset the inner and outter races for the bearings. Need it done to yours? He is excellent and very very reasonable. e-mail me if needed.....

Or you could buy station wagon brakes that were also used on police cars (assumes you can find the service parts for an old 1969-'76 B-body). That is why when you look in any parts catalog under brake parts it states (excludes Police and Station Wagon) which came with the heavy duty brake option of wider shoes in the rear drum and 12 inch rotors.

You would need the HD brake option steering knuckle because though the caliper is the same it is moved further out to match the larger disc rotor.

It looks like you have some kind of spacer plate on the rotor hat. If so it will push your wheel tire combination out that much (the thickness of the spacer plate). You will then have to buy a wheel with a custom offset to bring the wheel back into the center of the wheel well to compensate for that added thickness.

Of course my eyesight isn't what it used to be so you may not have an adapter at all.
