I got mine off of an 84 caprice you need the ones with 11 inch rotors to run 13s. Y ou have to get the whole assembly rotors ,spindles, calipers and brake line. You will wear out tires way quick and you wont lay low when dumped. I got rid of mine and went back to stock since my cutty is more show.

Yea cuz I was actually thinkin of getting some caprice spindles and shit but not of imma be eating up tires and shit. Its hard enough trying to find a place who will mount tires on some spokes. But aren't the tires str8 up and down when locked up with caprice spindles?

STOCK g-body a-arms with caprice spindles will have your tires pretty straight when locked up. If you want a little more, you can extend them .25-0.5" but trying stock a-arms first, you have nothing to lose.
