Default S10 Blazer Front Brake Swap?


This looks like it would be a great swap -- 11in rotors, Dual Piston Calipers, and it "bolts on" -- Does anyone know if this guy is all wet or are the spindles for the late model S-10 trucks this similar to G-Body spindles?

That guy badly needs to learn how to use spell check. My 4 year old could have written a more educated looking ad. I don't care how many pistons the caliper has it's still an 11" rotor. What do you have now, should be 10.5" or so? Seems like a waste of money, if you want better brakes, step up to 12 or 13".

will the stock 14" steel rally wheels clear the brakes? How about the 15" monte carlo rally wheels that look just like the stock El Camino wheels? I want bigger brakes but I want to keep my stock looking wheels.
